PEN Greek turkey meatballs
Honestly, guys? These meatballs will only put a big smile on your face.
Just like the peppers filled with Greek turkey quinoa, when your mouth chews through the freshness of mint and parsley and then gets 1-2 POINTS of other herbs and spices with melting, salty feta cheese? MAN OH MAN, it's GOOD.
I like making a HUGE batch that I have on hand for busy days of the week when I'm hungry but only have negative time to check.
There is also the whole saying "Greek flavors are always good, so you can always have them on hand". Actually, I just made it up, but whether it's these balls or a Greek chicken-fried cauliflower meal preparation bowl, my taste buds are ALWAYS here for Greek flavors.
Are turkey meatballs healthier than beef?
Who doesn't like meatballs? I dare you to name EVERYONE you can think of! I mean there it is Gluten-free vegan chickpea meatballs and Asian turkey meatballsand SO many more meatballs on the blog, so I think at this point it is clear that I am a big fan. Add some Greek taste and BAM – you get them Greek turkey meatballs with feta.
BUT are turkey meatballs actually healthier than beefballs? The quick answer is that they are just different! Turkey and ground beef are high in protein, potassium and iron, and both types of meat are high in fat. However, the turkey is leaner and contains less saturated fatty acids than beef, which makes it a good choice!

What goes well with meatballs from Greek Turkey?
Don't you love a recipe that's good in and of itself? This recipe definitely shines by itself with these fabulous Greek flavors. However, here are some options if you want to serve something alongside baked greek turkey meatballs:
How do you store the meatballs for later?
When I cook meatballs, I often cook a double batch because they freeze very well and are so easy to defrost and bake another time! To freeze them, store them in a single layer in a freezer bag and let them thaw in the fridge a day before baking! If you've cooked a few and want to enjoy them all week, this is another great option! Just cook the meatballs and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days!
