Figuring out what to feed your kiddos is ofen the most duanting and stressful part of raising tiny humans. We all want to serve healthy meals – and quick is the key component. Who has time to slave away in the kitchen? Especially during the witching hour (I’m looking at you, 5pm!) when toddlers are screaming and pulling at your shirt that’s already so stretched out, it’s borderline indecent.
I PRESENT YOU…..Turkey Meatballs! These seriously take 5 minutes to mix up, 30 minutes to cook, and they leave you with a ton left 0ver to freeze for future dinners that take 2 minutes to heat in the microwave. I always have these in my freezer!
Ingredients & Directions:
1 package lean Ground Turkey
1/3 cup Italian Bread Crumbs (any flavor, really)
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
2 tbsp Italian Seasoning
OR a combo of dried oregano, basil, and parsley
1/3 cup shredded or grated parmesan cheese
(I’ll tell you a secret. I never measure out the ingredients above. I literally just eyeball it. You can’t ruin this, I promise!)
Mix all ingredients together with your hands. Roll into balls. Place on greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle a touch more salt on top if desired. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn meatballs. Bake for another 10 – 15 minutes. Makes about 12-16 meatballs. All depends on how big ya roll ’em.
I serve a couple warm out of the oven for dinner. Then I fight off my husband from eating them all. Then I freeze the rest in a freezer bag. Sloane will eat these plain, or with pasta sauce, or with applesauce, or with hummus…basically she loves them any way I make them! On those nights when I have NO idea what to give her for dinner, I just pop 2 meatballs in the microwave for 1 minute, 30 seconds and presto! Dinner is served, ladies and gents.
