mama’s meatballs

not sure what’s happening with this here blog but until i figure it out, here’s another recipe for you. it’s a real winner, i promise. my 5yo says, “mama’s meatballs are awesome!” and for a 5yo and her 39yo daddy to want to eat them is saying something. it’s a winner. that’s what it’s saying. you’re welcome.

mamasmeatloaforiginally these were referred to as mini turkey meatloaf because that’s really what they are since i make them in a muffin tin. but to get the kid to maybe try a bite, i called them “mama’s meatballs” and gave her a side of ketchup. she devoured it, and, like i indicated above, she says they’re awesome.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 container extra lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 large zucchini (or more), shredded
  • 2 cups Kale (or more), chopped
  • 1-2 cups herb seasoning stuffing (or a box of stove top would work too)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbspn paprika
  • 1 tbspn parsley

DIRECTIONS

  • mix everything in a big bowl
  • spray a muffin tin with cooking spray
  • gather a handful of the mixture and make a ball of sorts to fit into muffin tins (12)
  • bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes

these smell amazing prior to baking and after. and they taste… wow. they really taste so freaking good.
