Sweet potato turkey meatballs are perfect when trying to sneak more vegetables into your kid's meals. Pro tip: dice the garlic and onion super fine for picky eaters. Serves 2 adults or 4 kids.

less than ¼ white onion, diced fine

Step 2: Season with JF Spicy Salt to taste.

Step 3: In a pan, warm your olive oil over medium/medium-high heat and begin to saute the onion and garlic.

Step 5: In a separate bowl combine your ground turkey with 1 egg. Season with JF Spicy Salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Step 6: Transfer the sweet potato into our ground turkey mixture and form your meatballs.

Step 7: Line them on a prepared sheet tray, coat in extra olive oil spray, and bake for about 15 minutes, then turn the oven to broil until the tops are crisp and slightly browned.
