    Giant chicken meatballs with a creamy cheese sauce. A great way to sneak spinach into your kids meals. Serve with egg noodles and broccoli.

    Meatballs

    Fondudita

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the ground chicken or turkey in the largest mixing bowl you own, and make a well in the middle of the meat. Add the spinach, onion, garlic, egg, milk, hot sauce, Panko crumbs, and Parmigiano-Reggiano; season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well.
    2. 2
      Form the mixture into 9 large balls, about the size of baseballs, and arrange on nonstick baking sheets. Roast for 35 minutes, or until they're browned to your liking. When finished, use a spatula and some heft to remove them from the pan to your serving dish of choice.
    3. 3
      While the meatballs are baking make the sauce.
    4. 4
      Heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter to the pan and about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Melt the mixture, add the onion, and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. Whisk in the flour. Cook for 1 minute; then whisk in the milk, and the broth. Bring the liquid to a boil. Slowly add the cheese. Once cheese is melted stir in parsley and season to taste with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
    5. 5
      Serve meatballs with a spoonful of the sauce over the top.

      I made a half recipe & elected to make smaller meatballs. I ended up with 8 golfball size. I liked the spinach & cheesy taste. I cooked them on a foil lined pan sprayed with cooking spray for clean up ease & baked at 350 degrees. (No temp is listed in the recipe.) The sauce was a nice accompainment & finished the dish nicely. I served with cheese tortillini & Texas Caesar Salad. Made for Spring 2010 Pick a Chef.
