Gluten Free Dairy Free Baked Turkey Spinach Meatballs

My kids adore meatballs.  Big ones, little ones, served on gluten free noodles, made into a sandwich, served on toothpicks.  Trust me.  Make meatballs and kids come running to the table!  I love having meatballs in the freezer because it makes it easy to pull together a meal fast.  These Gluten Free Dairy Free Turkey Spinach Meatballs are baked, not fried, and they have the addition of spinach and green onions for added nutrition and flavor.

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onions, diced
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup (I like fruit juice sweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup gluten and dairy free soft (not dry) bread crumbs (use half as much if using dry crumbs)
  • 1/2 cup gluten and dairy free parmesan cheese substitute, optional


Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Oil a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Set aside.

Combine turkey, spinach, green onions, oregano, basil, ketchup, salt, pepper, bread crumbs and cheese substitute in large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place in prepared baking dish. Bake 15 minutes or until fully cooked.

Freezing Directions:

To freeze: Allow to cool. Divide meatballs among the number of gallon-sized freezer bags indicated. Remove as much air as possible, label and freeze.

To serve: Thaw. Heat until warm.

        We include nutritional information on all of our Diet recipes but it is just too labor intensive to do it with all of recipes. Keep in mind we are providing free menus in addition to recipes so there are several extra steps we already take.
