It’s no secret that as a busy working mom with two boys playing baseball, I am constantly on the hunt for dinner ideas that are easy, healthy and delicious. And as much as I might be somewhat ashamed to admit, I struggle with using spices to create flavorful meals. Until now! When I was asked to share McCormick’s Herbed Turkey Meatballs, I was thrilled to try several spices to create an amazingly easy and flavorful homemade meal for my family: Herbed Turkey Meatball Sliders!
Over the weekend, I reviewed the recipe and added a few simple ingredients to my grocery list: ground turkey, bread crumbs and McCormick.com basil, oregano and garlic powder. I regularly substitute ground turkey and chicken in place of ground beef in spaghetti sauce and tacos, so I knew my family would love these herbed turkey meatballs. Look how easy it was to make a delicious Sunday dinner:
The meatballs are moist and tender, filled with garlic and herb flavor. After I dressed some shredded lettuce with a light Italian dressing, I added two meatballs and a dollop of marinara sauce on a slider roll and these herbed turkey meatball sliders were served!
Since I would not change a thing about the McCormick recipe for herbed turkey meatballs (we have already decided that we have to make them again to serve over pasta!), I wanted to share my three favorite things about this easy recipe:
- This is a “one bowl” recipe which makes prep work pretty much unnecessary. Measure the bread crumbs and McCormick spices into a large bowl. Then, add the beaten egg and ground turkey and stir to combine.
- Use a small cookie scoop to portion out the meatball mixture. My meatballs were all the same size, so none were over or underbaked!
- Finally, follow their tip to line your cookie sheet with foil. It made clean up SO easy and that means less dishes to wash!
Now that we’re all hungry, I am excited to announce that I am partnering with McCormick to host a Homemade in America Giveaway!! One lucky US resident will win a flavorful McCormick gift set!!
