These healthy turkey meatballs are a leaner alternative to ground beef and brimming with flavor. These meatballs are super quick and easy to make. Just six simple ingredients are all you need. They freeze incredibly well, ensuring that you have a fast, protein-packed snack or meal anytime.
Ground turkey is an excellent protein source, especially when it comes to weight loss. Eating more poultry may help reduce your risk of becoming overweight and developing cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. It has just as much (if not more) protein as ground beef, but with fewer calories and considerably lower fat. The mild flavor of ground turkey is also the perfect vehicle to let the flavor of the seasonings—and the SSG crisps—shine through.
Don’t be caught off-guard the next time you’re hungry. With these healthy turkey meatballs in the freezer, you’ll be able to make a healthy choice, no matter how short on time you are.
