Lemmonex, your friend and mine, is full of good ideas. She mentioned how fun it would be to meet and eat with fellow food bloggers, and voila, we were hosting a potluck. She mentioned how she loved the sliders at the Source, and voila, we were there, eating and drinking and getting hit on by creepy old men. Sure, even the best ideas can sometimes go awry (the Shamrockfest ankle debacle of 2008 comes immediately to mind), but our girl Lem is always thinkin’.
Recently, I was culinarily uninspired and looking for a healthy, yummy dinner recipe that wouldn’t break the bank. Lemmonex suggested these delicious turkey meatballs, which she adapted from a Ray Ray recipe. Sure enough, they were inexpensive, easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious. I adapted them a little myself, so here’s the recipe that I used.
Preheat the oven to 400°. Wring the spinach dry in a clean kitchen towel. Place the ground turkey in a large bowl. Add the spinach, onion, garlic, Egg Beaters, milk, bread crumbs, basil and the Parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. Mix with hands until combined, then form the turkey mixture into large balls, arrange on a nonstick baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 25 minutes. Broil on high for 2-3 minutes more, to brown the tops. Serve with pasta and sauce, on hoagie rolls (as pictured below), or just eat them plain!
