After finishing his dinner of stuffed eggplant and olive-stuffed meatballs...

Andrew: “Mom, I give your meatball recipe an A.”

Me: “Thanks, buddy. Glad you liked it.”

Andrew: “And I give your eggplant recipe a C.”

Me: “Ouch, that bad, huh?”

Andrew: “C isn’t too bad. It’s just the 3rd letter. Z is the bad one.”

As I’m sure you could tell, from Andrew’s rave review, these turkey meatballs are de-lish!

Lean, ground turkey, Italian seasoning and tangy olives make a winning combination.

Serve these as an appetizer, with little toothpicks, or as a main dish on a bed of spaghetti squash or sauteed vegetables. It only takes 20 minutes from start to finish.

Serves 20

20 ounces Italian Seasoned Lean Ground Turkey

30-40 Pitted Olives

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves Garlic, minced


Take one tablespoon of ground turkey at a time, flatten it in your hand and form around an olive to create a ball. Repeat with all of the turkey and olives.


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and spread around the pan. Add the meatballs.


Turn the meatballs every 3 minutes for 20 minutes of cooking. Remove once all sides are browned and the meatballs are cooked through.


Serve on a platter with any remaining olives.
