Turkey Meatballs with Bruschetta Sauce

Turkey Meatballs with Bruschetta Sauce

Have I got a delicious, healthy dinner for you today!

These turkey meatballs are so full of flavor, it’s hard to believe they are baked.

But before I begin, I want to share a new product with you. No, Reynolds has no idea who I am, and they are not paying me to tell you all about this product. But, I feel you all come to my blog for a reason. Whether it be to get a dessert recipe, see what we’re having for dinner, or find a useful tip somewhere amongst my ramblings.

My mom (HI MOM) told me about this product. Have you seen it? It’s Reynolds Wrap Pan Lining Paper (and I just noticed they have a coupon on their webpage if you go to the link). Basically, it’s foil on one side and parchment paper on the other side.

Which is PERFECT when you want to bake meatballs….or BACON. I don’t think I would use it for baking, because regular parchment paper works perfect, and why mess with that, plus this is very thick. What this new stuff does though, is like foil, you can wrap it around the sides of your baking dish, and it’s heavy duty, yet the top is parchment and your meatballs won’t stick (neither will your bacon, if you’re interested). Plus clean up is a breeze.

 Okay, so now that we have the pan liner covered, let’s get to these meatballs. Hubs and I are trying to eat healthier. You know, if we eat a healthy dinner then we can have dessert, right?

 This is a flavorful dish. You can certainly serve it with pasta, but we enjoy it with a big salad. And, the leftovers are delicious!


Yes, there are breadcrumbs in it. Yes, a little bit of parmesan cheese too. I said we are eating healthier. For us, this is pretty darn healthy! I mean, there’s no heavy cream, no butter, yeah…healthy.

 So take a bite. Then have some dessert! What? A girl has got to have her sweets!
