Turkey, Spinach and Feta Meatballs (or Make as a Turkey Burger)
These turkey meatballs are a healthy, flavorful alternative to traditional beef meatballs. The combination of ground turkey, feta, spinach, onions and a variety of savory herbs is heavenly. Because turkey tends to be dry, this recipe uses quick oats to lock in the rich flavor and create perfectly moist meatballs. These meatballs are great plain, in a sandwich, on a salad or on a plate of spaghetti topped with Roasted Tomato Basil Marinara Sauce. They also double as a burger. You can cook them and eat them fresh or freeze them for up to 30 days! Check out our recipe for Baked Spaghetti Squash for an amazing combination.

Recipe Notes

To brown meatballs/ burgers: Preheat a pan over medium-heat and add EVOO. Brown turkey balls approximately 1 minute on each side. Place turkey balls on parchment paper and cook in the oven for 17-20 minutes, until no longer pink in the center. Serve.

If cooking burgers on the grill: Refrigerate burgers for at least an hour after shaping them to firm up patty before grilling.
