ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400.
  • Wring the defrosted spinach dry in a clean kitchen towel. Place the turkey in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Add the spinach, all but 3 tablespoons of the onions, all the garlic, the egg, about ¼ cup of the milk, the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Form into 12 large balls and drizzle with oil. Arrange on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. (If you are doing OAMC, allow to cool and label and freeze at this point).
  • While the meatballs are in the oven, heat a small sauce pot over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil and the butter. When the butter is melted, add the reserved onions and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute, then whisk in the remaining milk and the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and then stir in the shredded cheese. Season the sauce with salt, pepper and nutmeg; turn the heat to the lowest setting and stir until the cheese melts. Keep warm.
  • Place 3 meatballs on each dinner plate and top with sauce.

    I have made this recipe at least 6 times and it's delicious. Even used canned spinach and it worked fine (just squeeze liquid out well). The sauce is yummy. I started with provolone and then started using what I had on hand and each alternative cheese has worked. It's a basic cheese sauce and we LOVE cheese. If you're not a big fan of spinach, cut back on quantity a bit, although I've never detected a strong spinach flavor.

    I used about 1 and a1/4 lb sweet italian turkey sausage, and 3/4 box of spinach for the meatballs everything else was the same. I loved them so did my SIL and 1 of my kids and hubby. Two of my picky eaters were not big fans but they were okay enough for them to eat all there dinner, so YEAH!! I seved the meatballs with 1 jar of vodka sauce and 1 jar of tomatoe pasta sauce, and all served over penne pasta. I will be making this again for sure!!
