    Stuff the Meatballs

    Combine ground turkey with seasoning salt in a medium mixing bowl and mix well. Divide into six golf ball-sized pieces. Flatten into 3"-wide patties. Tear cheddar slices into 1" squares and place on top of patties. Fold edges of patties inward to re-form into meatballs with cheddar in center. Roll in palms to seal.

  • Step 3 - Sear the Meatballs

    Sear the Meatballs

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add meatballs to hot pan and cook 7-9 minutes, or until browned on two sides. Cheddar may leak from meatballs. While meatballs sear, thoroughly wash bowl used for mixing meat and reserve for salad.

  • Step 4 - Finish the Meatballs
