The aromas that fill your kitchen while these bad boys are cooking will make your mouth water! Easy to prep, quick to make, and hard to resist. Instead of traditional breadcrumbs (I have also used oats in my meatballs before), this recipe calls for almond flour, making it the perfect fit for keto and low-carb lifestyles.
Great for Meal Prep
These baked meatballs are perfect for meal prepping. Cook up a batch on Sunday (this recipe makes about 24) and portion out into your meal containers. Pair with pasta or zoodles. They are also delicious on their own, dipped into some marinara sauce. YUMMMM!
In addition to the obvious pairing of pasta or zoodles, these turkey meatballs are so versatile and can be jazzed up in a variety of ways. Here are some ways to enjoy turkey meatballs for dinner:
- KABOBS– grill slices of onion and bell pepper. Alternate putting onion, meatball, and bell pepper on a skewer. Pair with a creamy dip like this Tzatziki dipping sauce.
- TURKEY MEATBALL PIZZA– Pita bread makes a great individual pizza. Layer on your favorite pizza sauce, shredded cheese, and then crumble meatballs on top. Put pizzas on baking sheet. Bake at 350F for about 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and edges are light brown.
- MEATBALL SUB– Warm up marinara sauce in a small pot and add in meatballs. Heat thoroughly. Slice open your favorite bread roll and toast slightly. Spoon meatballs and sauce onto bread and top with a slice of cheese like provolone or mozzarella.
- PINEAPPLE TERIYAKI TURKEY MEATBALLS– Turkey meatballs covered in a Pineapple Teriyaki sauce and paired with rice or lo mien.
To freeze: Allow to cool completely. Portion into servings of 4-5 meatballs, wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper, and put altogether in a gallon freezer bag or into separate freezer bags for each serving.
