Foodie Friday

With the start of a new month tomorrow I want to start a new series called Foodie Friday! As some of you may know cooking is one of my favorite hobbies and finding recipes that are both delicious and healthy requires creativity. For my first post of this series I am making spinach turkey meatballs. The prep time for this entree is 10 and requires 20 minutes in the oven for a start to finish time of 30 minutes. These were fantastic and easy to make in bulk so that I could freeze a few for another night! I've included the recipe below for the next time you need something quick and easy on any night of the week.

  • 1 large onion finely chopped or minced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 16 oz  package of frozen chopped spinach defrosted and drained to remove excess water
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 package of ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup Old Fashioned oats
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying with cooking spray. I actually line my baking sheet with foil and then spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, oats, and egg. Add minced onion, spinach, garlic, salt, pepper, Worcestershire, and oregano to the meat. I do all of this step with my hands, but you can use a spoon if you prefer.
  3. With your hands, create meatballs that are about the size of a golf ball and place them on the baking sheet. Leave a little bit of space between each meatball. When you are done shaping your meatballs, you will probably have about 25 meatballs from this recipe. Don't need that many? Freeze them after baking to save for another night!
  4. Bake until your meatballs are cooked through with an internal temperature of 160 degrees F - which was about 20 minutes for my oven. Remove from oven and serve as desired.
