I know I already have a version of turkey meatballs with spinach, but I was looking for something a more savory, so found  a few more recipes, and settled on this one as a base, and then just kept adding onto it.  I know you’re not supposed to mess with a good thing, but dare I say it, but I think I made it even better.




  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs, soaked in a splash or two of milk
  • 10 fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
  • Scant handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 7 lb of chopped pack frozen spinach, thawed.
  • 3 tbsp ketchup
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste

Add all the ingredients, stir, and then shape into small ice-cream scoop size balls. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
