  • 7 ingredients
  • 6 servings


box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
slices whole wheat sandwich bread, torn in pieces
cup half-and-half
lb ground turkey
can Pillsbury™ refrigerated original breadsticks
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
cups tomato pasta sauce


  1. 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. 2 Microwave frozen spinach as directed on box; cool slightly. Squeeze dry with paper towels.
  3. 3 In medium bowl, mix bread pieces and half-and-half; let stand 1 minute. With fork, mash bread until well blended. Add spinach, turkey, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix well. Shape mixture into 36 (1 1/2-inch) balls.
  4. 4 Unroll dough; separate into 12 breadsticks. Thread one end of a breadstick on 10-inch skewer; add 1 meatball, leaving 1/4 inch between dough and meatball. Repeat threading with breadstick and 2 additional meatballs. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining breadsticks and meatballs.
  5. 5 Bake 18 to 22 minutes, rotating cookie sheets halfway through bake time, or until meatballs are no longer pink in center and meat thermometer in center of meatball reads 165°F. Sprinkle each meatball skewer with about 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake 3 to 4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  6. 6 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, cook sauce over medium-low heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until thoroughly heated. Serve with meatball skewers.
