Slipping the Veggies in - Turkey and Spinach Meatballs

I love slipping spinach into meatballs. What a great tasting way to get veggies. I make these often enough and everyone enjoys them. It's not really hiding the veggie as much as it is making it a part of the meal but I think it makes it better and of course better for you. And of course I bake, not fry which is even better!

1 lb. ground turkey (I used Nature's Promise brand)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
5 oz or 1/2 package of frozen spinach, defrosted
1 egg
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

With your hands mix all the ingredients until well-combined. Shape into small to medium sized balls (about 18) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
