Veggie Stuffed Turkey Meatballs for the Whole Family

Here is yet another meatball recipe for your family. I think this is either the fourth or fifth different meatball recipe I've posted, so you can probably tell that I make meatballs a lot in our house. These meatballs are made with lean ground turkey meat, and chopped mushrooms, kale and carrots. This is a great way to get your protein and veggies all in one bite! These are for little ones 10+ months who are ready for finger foods and Mommies and Daddies of all ages. 

Here's what you need for 4 to 6 servings:
1 lb lean ground turkey
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped organic kale (I put all the veggies in a food processor)
1/2 cup finely chopped organic carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped cremini mushrooms
1 egg beaten
Salt (1 tsp)
1 1/2 jars organic marinara
Olive oil

Mix all ingredients except the marinara and olive oil in a large mixing bowl and form into small meatballs. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large deep skillet over medium high heat. Add meatballs and cook until golden brown on the outside flipping so all sides get cooked (approx 5 to 7 minutes). While meatballs are cooking heat the marinara sauce in a covered pot and let simmer. Add cooked meatballs to the sauce pot and let simmer for 5 to 10 more minutes. Let cool and serve over pasta of your choice. Make sure to cut your little one's portion up into small pieces. Enjoy!
