Meal prepping is one of my favorite topics over here on A Savory Feast. I like to be organized and plan ahead, so meal prepping is a must. It’s also a great way to save money!
I typically do some meal prepping every Monday. I do my grocery shopping, make lunches for my husband to take to work, prep for our dinners that week, and make some snacks or breakfast items for my toddler and I.
These Spinach and Cheese Turkey Meatballs are a recipe I make regularly for my husband’s lunches for work. They are made with ground turkey and packed with spinach, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, Italian spices and more.
Typically meatballs are made with breadcrumbs, but I like to make these without so that this recipe is low carb and gluten free. The meatballs still hold together just fine and taste great!
These meatballs are so simple to mix up, which makes them great for meal prepping or even making in bulk to freeze. I like to use my KitchenAid Stand Mixer to mix these up instead of trying to do it by hand. It makes it so much easier! Just throw all the ingredients in and let the mixer do the work.
How to Meal Prep Turkey Meatballs for Lunches
Follow the recipe to make these Spinach and Cheese Turkey Meatballs and let cool before dividing into containers for your lunches. You can pack them with sautéed vegetables for a low carb meal, or pack them with rice or pasta and sauce for a more filling meal. These meatballs are best warmed up in the microwave or oven once you are ready for lunch!
How to Serve these Meatballs for Dinner
Prepare the meatballs as directed in the recipe. They are delicious served with pasta and sauce! If you prefer, they are great with rice as well. Or if you are wanting a low carb meal, just serve with some sautéed vegetables.
These No Knead Rosemary Skillet Rolls are a delicious side to serve with these meatballs!
How to Freeze These Meatballs
Place the cooked and cooled meatballs on a fresh baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for a few hours or until frozen. Remove from the freezer and place the frozen meatballs into a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat the meatballs, thaw at room temperature for a couple hours and then cook as desired (see the ideas above for how to serve them for dinner or for lunches).
