Greek Turkey Meatballs

Updated: Aug 11, 2020

These delicious and flavorful turkey meatballs can be thrown together in minutes with just a few simple ingredients! The sneaky veggies keep the meatballs so moist with an effortless greek twist. Spinach and fat free feta are the key players here. I mix them in with the meat along with a few spices and you are all set. They are so flavorful and versatile I recommend making a big batch and enjoying all week!

Typically I serve these a top a big bowl of grains and greens and as many greek dressings and vegetables I can get my hands on. They are also delicious wrapped up in fluffy pita, served over a warm bowl of lemony noodles or even enjoyed in a sub roll! How you eat them is up to you but we made sure to share all the tips and tricks to enjoying all things greek with them.

If I have fresh parsley on hand I will chop it up and add it but if I don't, I won't and they are still delicious, which is why I made that ingredient optional. As for the fennel, that's a new spice I have been trying and LOVING in these meatballs. It adds a different peppery flavoring that is irresistible. For the original recipe, simply leave this spice out!
