Easiest weeknight meal ever: Baked turkey meatballs.
I’m gunna be straight with you today. I don’t have much in me for writing. We had a glorious couple snowy days on Sunday and Monday. Snowballs were definitely thrown. However, the snow comes with ice.
So last week, I slipped down some stairs. I’ve been fine but sore since then. This morning, I absolutely ate it on some ice on a driveway and hit all the sore spots on the way down. And before you judge, yes I was wearing snow boots. Good ones, from REI.
Basically I hurt and just want to go lay down with a hot pad/ice pack on my back and play Skyrim.
Soooo I’m gunna go do that. But first, baked turkey meatballs.
Honestly these are a lifesaver. I happen to have a bag of them frozen in the freezer. Just a quick reheat and homemade dinner is ready! (Thank the lord cause there’s no way I’m cooking tonight).
Anyhoo, how to make these baked turkey meatballs. It couldn’t be easier! Throw all the ingredients together in a bowl. Mix and then form tablespoon sized meatballs. Bake.
Oh and they’re delicious. Perfect for pasta, and great on their own. You can even use them as an appetizer served with your favorite pasta sauce! Which is probably what I’ll be doing tonight. Minimal effort, home cooked meal? All about it. Recipe in 3…2…Print
