Turkey Apple Meatballs

These Turkey Apple Meatballs are the perfect dish for Fall or Winter!  Try them atop some fresh egg noodles, in a pita, or on their own with some freshly baked apples for a delightful entry-to-cooler-weather dish!

The whole meal comes together very easily and the extra apples in the dish add an extra layer of seasonal flavor to the dish.  My kids love these and I’m sure you will too!

Turkey Apple Meatballs


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 large granny smith apples
  • 10 oz baby spinach
  • 1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 small yellow onions
  • 1/2 t dried sage
  • 1/2 t dried rosemary
  • 1.5 T butter
  • 2 T oil divided
  • 4 servings pasta of choice


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Cook the pasta according to directions.
  2. Grate one of the apples and one of the onions and set aside. Thinly slice the other apple and onion.
  3. Toss the sliced onions with about 1/2T of the oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until starting to soften, 8-10 minutes.
  4. Spread a Tablespoon of oil on a baking sheet. Squeeze the extra water from the grated apple and onion and place them in a bowl with the ground turkey. Season with salt and pepper. Form into meatballs (about 16). Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and put into the oven for 10 minutes, flip over, and continue to cook an additional 8-10 minutes until golden and cooked through.
  5. While the meatballs are baking, heat the remaining 1/2T of oil in a skillet over medium. Add the onion and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add the spinach, butter, sage, rosemary, salt and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes. Stir in the parmesan, baked apples and meatballs. Serve atop the cooked pasta.
