Turkey Zucchini Meatballs
We love turkey zucchini meatballs and are always looking for ways to perfect them! A healthy dinner starts with healthy ingredients and these yummy meatballs have lean turkey, oatmeal, and 2 whole cups of shredded zucchini!
After the meatballs have baked in the oven, we give them a light and tasty glaze with BBQ sauce. No one can resist these meatballs and they are every bit delicious as they are good for you.
We use a small shredder to easily shred a small/medium zucchini. It only takes about 2 minutes to shred your zucchini into 2 cups. Make sure to wash and dry the zucchini before you start to shred. If you have leftover zucchini, toss in a baggie and store to make rice.
