Turkey Spinach Meatballs

July 22, 2017

I know this is NOT the best picture... but honestly how do you make cooked ground turkey look sexy? I mean seriously?


I cook with ground turkey as much as possible. I still eat ground beef, but with the high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and other health issues that run in my family, I try to focus on a healthy alternative, when possible. I am constantly on Pinterest collecting new recipes and ideas. I also subscribe to a number of magazines... but that is a different addiction that we don't need to talk about, EVER.


So moving forward to cooking. Since my other half now works late we don't eat dinner together anymore. I know, it's very sad. So I like to cook in bulk for the week so that we can heat it up through out the week. He will take everything, as in lunch and dinner, to work so he isn't eating so late.


Turkey Spinach Meatballs were very easy to make and we usually eat them without any sauce and just a bunch of veggies, either roasted or steamed. These were extremely easy to make and I just ended up combining a bunch of different recipes I found online to make it Whole30 compliant. Hopefully you enjoy these meatballs as much as we have. I did not include any nutritional information. Sorry folks you'll have to do that yourself especially because you can make the meatballs any size your heart desires!


Side note: some of the recipes I have found used frozen spinach as opposed to fresh spinach, I honestly prefer fresh spinach, using fresh turned out very well, no let me correct that, EXTREMELY well for me.



  • 1lb of Ground Turkey-Organic

  • 1 egg

  • 2-3 Handfuls of Chopped Spinach (Mine equaled about 3 1/2 C)

  • 1/2 tsp of Garlic Powder

  • 1/2 tsp of Onion Powder

  • 1 tsp of Basil

  • A couple dashes of preferred hot sauce (If you prefer, I just love my food to have a little kick)


  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees, line baking sheet with parchment paper

  2. Combine all ingredients together-GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY AND MIX IT ALL UP!

  3. Create size of meatball desired. I made about 8 large meatballs

  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes


    Of course... ENJOY!
