Turkey and Pork Cheesey Meatballs

I have a bad habit of always cooking the same things for dinner. Even though I’m a stay at home mom I find it makes the day go smoother if I just cook one of my same simple meals. After David & I had a discussion the other day about me mixing it up, I decided to try to make something he made one Thanksgiving for me while I was pregnant with Brooklyn, and had gestational diabetes… Turkey and Pork Cheesey Meatballs!

I’ve been thinking about making these since he made them Thanksgiving 2016. That’s a long time. I decided to finally break my routine & make them. I’m definitely happy I did. It’s such a simple recipe too. DJ loved it, but I did have to pick out the onions from his plate.

To begin I preheated the oven to 350 & sprayed a pan with cooking spray. I added the pork, turkey, egg,  onion, garlic, spices (adobo & salt), and sofrito (you can find a recipe for that here) to a bowl and combined all together.

After all of that is combined I added the cheese until I got the right amount that I wanted, which was about 1 cup. Once cheese in thoroughly combined, I molded the mixture into large cue ball sized meatball. I made about 13 out of this mixture.

I cooked it for 30 minutes. I ate my meatball with my favorite three cheese marinara sauce. Next time I’d really like to try these with a pesto sauce!

    Meatballs are a great way to go for finding variety. I’m like you when it comes to the kitchen, I stick to the same things and I just don’t like thinking about cooking that much although sometimes I have decent ideas. You could mix in veggies in there too, you’ll never know they’re there.

      I wanted to add some spinach or parsley, but I was out of it that day. Next time I definitely add some green into them to make sure my toddler gets some more veggies in his diet!
