I love meatballs, but the Doc says I should be eating more turkey instead of beef. So, in my laziness, I have been buying pre-cooked frozen meatballs and throwing out half of them because they are so rubbery and tasteless. Then one day I went to an event where they had real home-made meatballs, the juicy, tender beef version. I was in heaven and swore off the packaged ones from that point forward.
Later that night, I searched the internet high and low to find some ideas for better tasting, tender turkey meatballs. I found some great ideas where they baked their meatballs first. I don’t know how I got to this age without knowing that you can bake meatballs, but here we are. So, yearning for a tender, juicy turkey meatball that wasn’t hard enough to play ping pong with, I came up with a plan and tested that plan. Turkey meatball lovers, you don’t need to cheat anymore. I froze the extras in a quart bag, for later on!

Love turkey meatballs, and turkey meatloaf too! It certainly isn’t the same as the beef, but we like to rotate around here. And baking meatballs is my favourite, I do not have the time to stand there and fry them and I end up burning my arms up, haha.
I am 100% in agreement, Peachy! Anything I can throw in the air fryer or oven wins my vote!! I avoid greasy anything like the plague!! 🙂
