Easy Cheesy Turkey Meatballs
Easy Cheesy Turkey Meatballs are made with the classic Italian seasonings found in most meatballs and lean ground turkey. After the meatballs are rolled into balls, they’re browned in a small amount of olive oil, in a medium skillet, over medium heat. They are then intentionally smothered in your favorite marinara sauce. The icing (so to speak) on the meatballs is extra sharp Wisconsin cheddar cheese. Serve meatballs, sauce and cheese with crispy polenta rounds and for a complete meal, serve a side salad topped with Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressing
Found On Pinterest
This is another Pinterest recipe. Bacon Lettuce Tomato Salad with Avocado was a recipe we posted a few days ago, was also found on Pinterest. The original recipe or the one I found on Pinterest, is actually a Keto friendly recipe served with cauliflower purée. Since we don’t follow the Keto diet plan religiously, I tweaked the recipe somewhat to suit our tastes. The original recipe can be found here~Joyful Healthy Eats.
Aldi recently had Jenni-o (3 lb rolls) ground turkey on sale for $4.99. I picked up a roll and immediately thought of meatballs. Since it’s just me and my hubby at home, I like to make a huge batch of meatballs and freeze them. Freezing meatballs is super easy to do, affordable and economical. This time around we made mini meatballs too. The mini meatballs will be added to soup, which is an upcoming recipe.
How to Freeze Meatballs
There are so many different ways to prepare and serve meatballs. I mean the list goes on and on. Therefore, it made complete sense to me to make a big batch of meatballs and freeze them. Here is a quick recipe tip: Make the meatballs according to the recipe directions. Roll ground turkey mixture between the palms of your hands. Roll into meatballs about the size or smaller of a golf ball. Do the same for mini meatballs, only making them smaller obviously, by using a cookie scoop to make the meatballs uniform shape.
Place the meatballs in a single layer on baking sheets lined with waxed paper. Cover meatballs loosely with clear plastic wrap and place in the freezer. Freeze until meatballs are completely frozen, around 2 hours. Remove meatballs from the freezer and divide meatballs up (about 12 per baggie) between ziplock freezer baggies. Put back in the freezer until needed.
