Turkey Meatballs 3 Ways

Written by Terra's Kitchen | Thu, Oct 20, '16

 

Meatballs are a classic comfort food that deserves a place in your family’s dinner lineup because of their simplicity, versatility, and the fact that they are downright tasty. It’s easy to transform basic  turkey meatballs into exciting, healthy dinners. You can make your own from fresh ingredients in just a few minutes. Even better, once your meatballs are done, you can freeze the extra to use in another recipe, shaving off minutes from your prep work for another day, genius.


Depending on what you plan on making next, you can either brown the meatballs in a skillet (great for dishes like our Swedish Meatballs) or broil them in your oven for about 8 minutes. Here are three simple recipes to dress up this family friendly staple.

  1. Turkey Spinach Meatballs in Skinny Sunday Gravy is a straightforward dish that is sure to satisfy your dinner guests any night of the week (not just on Sunday!). If you want a meal that is more substantial and less skinny, you can easily add some of our whole wheat penne to increase the portion sizes. 
  2. Swedish Meatballs will warm you up and ensure nobody leaves the table hungry. You can have your own homemade version of this classic on the table in only 25 minutes if you follow our meal kit’s straightforward instructions. Warning: this meal will leave your house smelling delicious! 
  3. Turkey Meatball, Kale and Orzo Soup probably isn’t something you ever dreamed you could cook on your own in only a half-hour, but with pre-prepped ingredients it really is that easy. Once you broil your meatballs, the hard work is done, all you have to do next is stir, simmer and enjoy!

Add any of these turkey meatball recipes from our current menu to your weekly meal kit, and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes or less. Outside of your main course, meatballs are great for appetizers and parties. Think cocktail meatballs with a sweet and savory sauce or meatball sliders for game day!

If you have your own meatball recipe that you can’t wait to try, simply add 12 oz. of ground turkey from our a la carte protein menu to your next order. Click below to learn more about how Terra’s Kitchen works and to see our full menu of options.
