Turkey, Spinach and Parmesan Meatballs

Last night I made these meatballs for “the boys” for dinner with the Pot-Chos I posted earlier.  Now Chris wasn’t a huge fan although he did still eat most of his, but Dillon cleaned his plate, so go figure?

This is the ingredients I started with… at least I hope I didn’t leave anything out this time!

To start with, I mixed the ground turkey, spinach and green onions in a large bowl.

Next I added the egg, bread crumbs/oatmeal, parmesan, garlic powder and chicken broth.

Okay, I did forget something in the ingredients picture… but only because I didn’t have enough bread crumbs… I ended up using oatmeal instead with just the sprinkle of bread crumbs I had.

I mixed it all together, let it sit for about 5 minutes so everything could “stick” well to each other…

And then I started rolling.  I made fairly large meatballs.  I think I ended up with about 20 meatballs from 1 lb. of ground turkey.

I baked these at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, turning them over part way so all sides were browned.

And then I topped them with some Honey Garlic BBQ sauce, but you can top them with whatever you normally use, or eat them as is.
