This easy turkey meatball recipe is for all my busy people (so, everyone?!) – it’s just what you need! Quick, flavorful, healthy, and a superb prep ahead meal. These easy turkey meatballs work great whether you’re hosting a big spaghetti and meatball family and friends dinner, or  whether you want to freeze a batch or two and thaw a couple at a time when you need them.

I’m actually such a big fan of having a stash of these easy turkey meatballs in my freezer as often as possible that I ALWAYS make a double or triple batch of meatballs! If it’s a busy night I just grab enough out of the freezer to feed my husband, my daughter, and myself, and then thaw in the microwave a few minutes until they’re warmed through. (If you don’t have a microwave or don’t like to use a microwave, you can totally reheat them in the sauce on the stove top – it’ll take a little longer, but the meatball is already cooked and the sauce will help keep it moist.)

If you’re looking for a sauce to pair it with, I recommend my Freezer Tomato Sauce. Then when you’re grabbing your meatballs from the freezer, just grab a frozen portion of that Freezer Tomato Sauce along with a few meatballs from the freezer and you’re golden! If you plan ahead, you can even let them thaw overnight/ all day in the fridge and then dinner just needs to be heated when you get home. That is my kind of weeknight dinner!

We’ve enjoyed these meatballs plain as a quick high-protein snack, on top of zoodles, spaghetti squash, gluten-free brown rice noodles, crumbled on pizza flatbreads, and in delicious gluten-free meatball subs! Pretty much no matter what, it’s always delicious!
