Turkey Spinach Meatballs

I like to bake these on Sundays and use them throughout the week.  They reheat really nicely and are quick and easy.  We usually use these for pasta or Jeff's favorite, a meatball sandwich!!

Turkey Spinach Meatballs
14 oz extra lean ground turkey
9 oz bag of baby spinach wilted, or you could use 10 oz frozen spinach
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
1/2cup grated cheese, I used the 3 cheese blend parmesean, romano and asiago
2 TBSP garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything in a bowl until combined.  I use a 1/4 measuring cup to scoop out the mix, then divide it into half.  So each meatball is about 1/8 cup.  This made 21 meatballs today, sometimes more or less. Go figure!

Bake at 450 degrees for 23-25 minutes.

Serving size is 4 meatballs.  Each serving has 160 calories, 5g fat, 5.4g crabs and 22.6g protein.  Yummy!!
