Ingredients

    16 oz Jennie-O Lean Ground Turkey
    1 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    .25 cup Milk
    3 cup Spinach, fresh
    .5 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions, raw
    .16 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
    0.5 cup Progresso Bread Crumbs - Italian Style
    2 tbsp Olive Oil
    2 tsp Garlic
    Basil, to taste

Tips

You can use whatever onion you prefer.
This recipe doubles nicely. You can also make them smaller, but adjust cooking time accordingly.


Directions

-Preheat oven to 375.
-Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sautÚ until it's beginning to become soft and translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute or so. Add the spinach. Cook and stir until it begins to wilt, about 2-3 more minutes. Pour the veggies into a large bowl.
-To the bowl, add the breadcrumbs, egg, milk, cheese, and spices. If you don't keep milk on hand like me, canned evaporated milk will work just fine. I also used gluten free Italian breadcrumbs which worked wonderfully. Mix well until combined.
-Add your ground turkey and gently mix until combined.
-Roll the mixture into round balls and place on a pan lined with foil and lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
-Cook at 375 for about 18 minutes or so, then broil for 2-3 minutes to get them slightly browned.

I serve with steamed zucchini and sauce and want to lick my plate clean!
