Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs

Turkey, Spinach & Cheese Meatballs

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large egg
3 ounces baby spinach, chopped (3-1/2 cups whole; 1-1/2 cups chopped)
3 scallions, white and green parts, finely sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1.25 pounds 93/7 ground turkey (I use Shady Brook Farms)
1.25 pounds Italian turkey sausage, removed from the casings (I use Shady Brook Farms)
1 cup shredded mozzarella (preferably whole milk but low-fat will work)
1/3 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano, plus more for serving
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • Preheat the broiler and set an oven rack on the second-highest rack. Line a baking sheet with heavy duty aluminum foil and grease with the olive oil.
  • In a bowl large enough to hold all of the ingredients, beat the egg. Add the chopped spinach, scallions, and garlic and stir until evenly combined. Add the ground turkey, turkey sausage, mozzarella, Parmigiano-Reggiano and bread crumbs. Using your hands, mix until evenly combined. Shape the mixture into 1-1/2 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Broil the meatballs until golden brown on top, about 10 minutes.
