Turkey Meatballs for Baby

I've been experimenting with different ways to make baby meatballs, and came up with this the other day. It's a great way to get meat and veggies all in one bite.  I served them with Trader Joe's mini ravioli. This is for babies 9+ months.



Here's what you'll need:
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup minced organic broccoli
1/4 cup minced organic garbanzo beans
1 egg
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups salt free organic marinara sauce (Trader Joe's makes a good one)
olive oil

Put turkey, broccoli, garbanzos, egg, parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a medium size bowl and mix together with your hand until well blended, and then make into little meatballs. Pour marinara sauce into a medium size pot. Cover and heat over medium to low heat. Heat 2-3 tblsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the meatballs around the skillet and cook until golden brown on all sides. When they are browned transfer them to the sauce pot, cover, and cook the meatballs through in the sauce stirring occasionally. This usually takes about 10 more minutes. This makes a big batch of meatballs so you can store them in the freezer for 2 months.

  1. In the event that you are prepared to make a fast and delectable supper for you and your family, you may jump at the chance to know how to make dumpling meatball stew formula. In spite of the fact that it calls for a few fixings, you might as of now have a hefty portion of them sitting tight for you in the kitchen cabinets.

  2. I love meatballs! I wonder if I can make them on the stove as my oven doesn't work.
