I actually made these up during naptime and put the cookie sheet in the fridge until dinner. Then, I just popped them in the oven when it was time for dinner. Fast, healthy, pretty, and delicious! And 2/3 of the children liked them, too.
Greek Turkey Meatballs
1 pound ground all-white meat turkey
1 box frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1 whole egg
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Add ground turkey, spinach, garlic, feta, egg, bread crumbs, oregano, salt, and pepper to large bowl and mix well. Make into evenly sized, small meatballs (I used the small ice cream scoop I use for cookies).
Place meatballs on a lightly greased cookie sheet and place in oven for 10 minutes. Turn the meatballs over and return to oven for 10 more minutes.
I served them with grilled pita bread, sliced cucumber, and Tzatziki sauce.
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 seedless cucumber, grated on box grater
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
juice of one lemon
2 cloves garlic, grated
fresh mint, to taste
fresh dill, if you like dill. I do not.
Mix it all together. Serve immediately, or sauce will keep overnight in the refrigerator.
