Sue developed this recipe last year for the Little Potato Company recipe contest. It didn’t win but sure was a hit at our house!
It’s basically all the best things about a full on turkey dinner in one bite. Turkey, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and even hints of green bean casserole!
You’re super curious now, right?
You totally should be.
Sue’s meatballs are perfect for game night, after school snack time, ladies night, potlucks… I think you see the pattern here… basically ANY time. They also freeze and reheat well, FYI.
Turkey Dinner Meatballs
1 lb ground turkey
1 box Stove Top stuffing
1 can French’s Fried Onions
1 bag Little Potato Company potatoes
1 cup prepared Turkey gravy
mozzarella or cheddar cheese slices
Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
Combine the ground turkey, egg, Stove Top stuffing, and half the fried onions. If the mixture is too dry, add a few spoonfuls of water.
Take one of the small potatoes and press a small amount of the meat mixture around it to cover it completely. Pat firmly while rolling in your hand. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining meat and potatoes. Cook at 350 until meat is done and potatoes are fork tender, about 40 or so minutes. Before removing from the oven – top some of the meatballs with cheddar and mozza slices and keep in the oven until cheese is melted. Immediately after removing from oven; sprinkle the cheese with the remaining French’s Fried Onions. (To make them look a little different Sue did some with mozza, some with cheddar, and some without any cheese.) Place the meatballs on a serving tray with the hot turkey gravy for dipping.
These are sooooo tasty!
You can easily reheat these in the microwave (or oven) and they are just as delicious!
A whole turkey dinner in one bite!! I say the Little Potato Company missed a real winner here…. Sue comes up with some pretty good ideas sometimes! (I’ll be sharing my potato recipe shortly. I made the Top 5 in the Little Potato Company competition in 2018 but unfortunately didn’t win first! Be sure to check back for my recipe!)
