Lightened-Up Turkey Swedish Meatballs Recipe – Homemade turkey meatballs smothered in a light, yet very delicious gravy sauce.
Just the way I like meatballs ~ humble, rustic, and vibrant!
Hi Hey Hello! Happy Sunday, my internet BFFs! I hope you are enjoying this day with your feet up on the couch, your blanket around your shoulders, and the TV remote in YOUR hands.
I’ve told you on many-ah-occasions that Sundays are my favorite. I love them… but I hate them after about 6 pm, around that moment when I realize all-the-things that gotta get done before Monday arrives. AND that I have to get up early in about 12 hours. Blah.
But, I gotta say, and I’m about to repeat myself for the umpteenth time this week, however, I am really, really looking forward to tomorrow’s Monday. You know why? BECAUSE, Punta Cana here I come! 🎉
P.S. I hate flying. ✈
P.P.S. I love the beach. 🚤
In addition to finishing up with packing, I’m also stuffing my hungry face with these meatballs. 👊 Lucky girl, I know.
P.P.P.S. Like a little kid, I still giggle at the word “meatballs”. 🙈
So, Lightened-Up Turkey Swedish Meatballs is one of those recipe names where you read it and say, mmmmmm! sounds… good? ….and. what is it? Let me tell you about my version of Swedish Meatballs. Ahem.
For one, it’s kind of, sort of, nothing like Swedish Meatballs, LOL!, BUT they’re Swedish because of the gravy sauce. Which is also not *just* like the gravy sauce that Swedish Meatballs are supposed to be swimming in. LOL again! (I really AM laughing. 😆) BUT BUT BUT. Sometimes, when you want to eat better, healthier, lighter, you gotta take good ol’ classics and give ’em a facelift. And that’s what I’m here for.
Though truthfully, honestly, fo’ realz, I just love this so super easy meatball recipe like a hundred-times better than any other. Mainly for the gravy.
I also took my favorite turkey meatballs recipe, modified it a bit, and smothered them in said gravy, which is flavored with dijon mustard. *drools*
Don’t knock it until you try it. It’s awesome.
Get your face right in there. YUM!
