    Chef Llama's Note:

    These are more than meatballs. This is one of my own adaptations from the traditional spaghetti and meatballs. They are healthy and tasty. You can bake or pan fry these for a little variety. Pan frying gives you the option of making a sauce all in one.

      MMM-mmm-mmm! G-O-O-D! In just looking through this recipe, I was interested because they included vegetables, whole grains, herbs and spices (especially garlic and onion). I used 1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey (standard package from Costco), 1-10 oz. pkg frozen spinach, thawed and drained, 1 of my dad's hearty whole wheat biscuits (instead of the whole wheat bread and wheat germ). Mixed it up this far one day ahead of time. Today I pan-fried the meatballs in a little extra virgin olive oil, and put them in the slow cooker with the sauce from Sweet and Sour Jelly Meatballs Sweet and Sour Jelly Meatballs AKA Jelly Meatballs, and they were all eaten! I was hoping I would have a few left over to make meatball subs for tomorrow. Not a chance. These meatballs were delicious by themselves, and excellent with the sauce, too.

      Thank you, Chef Llama, I will definitely makes these again and again!
