This Meatball is Bananas

For #ThrowbackThursday, I brought back one of my old tricks: mashing fruit or veggies into ground turkey to add moisture and a hint of sweetness. In the past, I used applespears, even zucchini and pumpkin (the last of which was surprisingly popular. Just google “pumpkin meatballs” and you’ll see my 2009-era iPhone shot).

Tonight I went “bananas” and mushed an overripe banana into the bowl of ground turkey, along with bread crumbs, Herbes de Provence and salt & pepper. The meatballs were delicious served over rice with a sprinkling of Parmesan. Sweet!
