A note about serious food allergies
Bring some serious oomph to the workaday meatballs with these cheddar stunners, bathed in a sauce of chipotle BBQ that adds both the serious spice and the fun sweet. Healthy zucchini and delicious fluffy mashed potatoes bring together a meal that’s more than the sum of its parts. (But those parts are fantastic!)

Prepare the Ingredients
Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.
Trim zucchini ends, halve lengthwise, and cut into ½" slices.
Cut potato into large chunks.
Make the Potatoes
Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.
Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
Add butter, half the onion salt (reserve remaining for meatballs), 1 Tbsp. potato cooking water, and sour cream. Mash until smooth. If dry, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Stir in green portions of green onions. Cover and set aside.
While potatoes boil, make meatballs.
Prepare the Meatballs
In a mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, white portions of green onions, Italian panko, cheese, remaining onion salt, and a pinch of pepper. Form turkey mixture into eight evenly-sized meatballs.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add meatballs to hot pan and sear on two sides until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer meatballs to one half of prepared baking sheet. Meatballs will finish cooking in a later step.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Cook Meatballs and Zucchini
Place zucchini on empty half of baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into zucchini.
Spread zucchini into a single layer on their side. Roast in hot oven until zucchini is tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
Glaze Meatballs and Finish Dish
Return pan used to sear meatballs to medium heat. Add chipotle BBQ sauce and 1 Tbsp. water to hot pan. Stir constantly until combined and warm, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner. Add cooked meatballs and gently stir until coated with sauce.
