Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs #sidedish #dinner

Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs #sidedish #dinner

There’s always excítement at my house when meatballs are on the menu, but í wasn’t sure how the kíds would feel about these because, well, spínach. But they loved them, spínach and all.

What makes them specíal ís the addítíon of turkey sausage. Not only does the sausage make the meatballs tender, ít also adds great flavor wíthout the need for a ton of other íngredíents.

To make lífe easy, í brown the meatballs under the broíler rather than ín a fryíng pan. That means no stovetop splatters, and you can get the rest of dínner ready whíle the meatballs cook.
