Mozzarella Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs seamlessly blend the goodness of turkey, the invigorating freshness and flavor of pesto, and a playful gooey mozzarella cheese center. Not only are they easy to make, but they also deliver a robust protein punch, rendering them a wholesome and gratifying option for any meal.
With such simple and minimal ingredients, these Mozzarella Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs offer a quick, delicious, and healthy high-protein option to add to any meal. You’ll need ground turkey, but you can also substitute it with ground chicken, lean beef, bison, or lamb. Choose your favorite pesto sauce (I used my winter pesto, but any pesto will do), and cut whole milk mozzarella cheese into bite-sized pieces. However, any good melty cheese works as a suitable replacement.
Delicious on their own, these Mozzarella Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs become even more delightful when paired with a pasta and veggie-filled dish, served in a bowl with rice and veggies, tossed on a salad, or nestled in a sandwich. The pairing possibilities are endless!
For a dairy-free version, feel free to omit the mozzarella. For a gluten-free alternative, simply substitute the panko with a gluten-free version, readily available in grocery stores or on Amazon.Print
