Florentine Meatballs created by vrvrvr

These spinach meatballs are great. I recommend topping them with a bit of alfredo sauce.

    Excellent. I used fresh baby spinach, quickly sauteed with garlic, drained on paper towels and roughly chopped. I used ground beef instead of turkey, and 1/4 c. ketchup in place of the milk. I browned them in a skillet and finished in a 400 oven for about 15 minutes. The result was a moist, tender meatball bursting with flavor. Went perfectly with crispy potatoes. Everyone loved these. Winner!!

    What's not to like? Beautifully textured moist meatballs with a delicious flavor plus a creamy sauce on top added up to a very enjoyable meal. I scaled the recipe to three quarters, and made smaller meatballs. My scaled recipe yielded 19 40-gram meatballs. I expected them to brown a bit more, but think that my somewhat hard to use oven was at fault there. Delicious anyway. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
