Baked Apple Cheddar Turkey Meatballs
Healthy baked turkey meatballs with a twist! Tangy granny smith apples and melty cheddar cheese make these meatballs extra flavorful and fun.
- 1 medium apple, Granny Smith
- 1 pound turkey, ground
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 4 cup green beans
- 4 ounce macaroni pasta, dry
- 2 cup spaghetti or marinara sauce
- 2 medium apple
Preheat oven to 400 F. Wash and shred Granny Smith apple; squeeze out any excess liquid.
Add grated apple, turkey, egg, salt, pepper, onion powder, and cheese to a large bowl. Mix well. (Your hands work best!)
Make golf-ball sized meatballs and drop them onto a parchment-paper lined baking sheet.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through and browning on top.
Before eating, steam green beans, cook pasta according to package, and heat pasta sauce. Core remaining apples and cut into slices.
Top pasta with sauce and meatballs. Serve green beans and sliced apples on the side.
