These spinach, feta, and turkey meatballs are quick and easy to make, easy to freeze, and taste great when reheated. My son and I call these "Combine Nuggets." Did you know that a combine is a giant tractor that harvests crops from the field? Well, I most certainly didn't until my 3-year-old told me! Therefore, thanks to the hardworking combines we can put the green things in our nuggets.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix together turkey, drained spinach, feta cheese, paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until well combined. Roll into 24 meatballs and place in the prepared muffin tin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until meatballs are cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can freeze leftovers in a resealable plastic bag. To reheat frozen meatballs, place in a greased baking dish, cover, and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven until warmed all the way through, about 20 minutes.

I used fresh garlic and added chopped onion. and because my husband and I are avoiding sodium omitted that. Absolutely delicious! I made 3 recipes to freeze so we have something to grab for lunches at work. This is definitely a keeper! Read More

I did not have a mini-muffin pan so I used a regular muffin pan to make mini meat loaves. I also sautéed fresh spinach with 1/2 an onion and some garlic. I seasoned this with some dill weed. I also threw in some grated Parmesan cheese to the turkey mixture as I was a little bit short on Feta. Turned out pretty tasty! Read More
