Under 10 Ingredients

Our goal is always to use the least ingredients to get the maximum flavor and to show you guys that cooking and eating well don’t have to be complicated! These baked turkey meatballs are a great showcase of both of those goals. With under 10 ingredients (most of which are seasonings you probably have on hand), these meatballs are simple, yet packed with flavor. And….all you have to do is get your hands a little dirty to mix up all the ingredients and roll them into balls.

Meal Plan + Prep

Hands down the best way to make sure eating well during the work week is easy, is to do a little meal planning and prep over the weekend. We recommend prepping a larger meal, breakfast and a snack over the weekend. And if you’re like me and have a sweet tooth, sometimes prepping a treat is good too, just so a healthier option is readily available when the craving hits. These baked turkey meatballs are a great make ahead meal because you can make a bunch of meatballs and store them in the fridge or freezer for easy re-heating.

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner

Once you’ve meal prepped these baked turkey meatballs, all you have to do is re-heat them. You can pair them with just about anything – greens, your favorite roasted, raw or grilled veggies, eggs, etc. And changing what you eat them with makes your meals feel a little different each time, which is great for those of you who crave variety! They really are versatile and can serve as the protein for your breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can even just have a meatball or two for a quick snack!
