For the love of Meatballs
My kids LOVE meatballs. We had a lot of meat and potato type dinners when I was growing up, but I don’t recall having meatballs very often if at all. It was more of an appetizer at parties and for some reason I didn’t gravitate towards them.
Do you eat the same as you did when you were a kid? I’m thinking back to my childhood, and I definitely have some different habits than when I was growing up.
I remember my mom’s roast being my most very favorite dish. I also remember some of the quick stuff she threw together. Like hamburger and corn. Is this really a meal? She would just brown ground beef and add frozen corn. I think we ate a lot of red meat and chicken.
Isn’t it funny which habits you carry on and which ones you ditch? I’d love to hear yours.
Quick Dinner Solutions
But now, we are all in love with meatballs! And this Hawaiian style easy turkey meatball recipe is a life saver for busy weeknights. I picked up these Farm Rich Turkey Meatballs at my local Walmart store in the freezer section. I also grabbed some Mozzarella Bites.
I love Farm Rich because they’re made with wholesome ingredients and they just make dinner time or snack time so much easier. The mozzarella bites are made with 100% real cheese and serve as a good source of calcium and protein. I like to serve them with dinner or as an after school snack to tie them over.
My kids seem to be absolutely starving after school. They are eating me out of house and home and they’re not even teenagers yet! 😀 Seriously, they act like I don’t feed them!
It’s all about that… bowl
The inspiration for this easy turkey meatball recipe came from our love of bowls and meatballs. I wonder which habits my kids will take with them when they leave the nest?

For this recipe I whipped up a quick teriyaki sauce which literally took me five minutes, and let the meatballs simmer in it until they were warmed through. Then I cooked up some chinese noodles and sautéed some veggies and dinner was done.
