These Trader Joe’s turkey meatballs have a pretty good taste to them, and are super easy to heat up. They have a lot less calories and fat in them than regular beef meatballs, and the taste is a decent turkeyish and salt combo. I like popping a handful of these little meatballs into the microwave for a few minutes, then pouring the best bbq sauce at Trader Joe’s over them, the organic Kansas City Style bbq sauce. All of Trader Joe’s fully cooked frozen meatballs have a pretty good taste to them but I would put the regular old Trader Joe’s Meat Balls slightly ahead of these if you don’t care about calories! Keep a bag in your freezer for random lazy nights………….

Turkey Meatballs at Trader Joe’s
The best part about these turkey meatballs is how you can just dump some in a bowl and microwave them in less than two minutes. The one thing I’d say is if you are looking for a super meaty taste and texture, these probably won’t be your jam. But if you’re buying turkey meatballs you kind of expect them to be slightly less hearty and dense than beef meatballs. What is everyone’s favorite dipping sauce or dressing to use with these little flavor balls? I like bbq sauce the best, but sometimes I’ll drizzle some balsamic vinaigrette over these so the sweetness sort of counteracts the grease and turkey texture. But when you’re paying $3.99 for a bunch of fully cooked and flame broiled meatballs that are frozen, this is a pretty darn good deal. And you won’t find an easier meal to make on a random weeknight! And if you can’t make it out to TJs, give these items a try…..

I absolutely love Trader Joe’s and I was not expecting amazing meatballs from the frozen section but I was certainly not expecting this.
These are terrible. Like spit out of your mouth terrible.
Sadly, I must agree. I do not consider them as being on par with their usual standards. Think I bought them a few years ago and didn’t like them, then saw them today and bought them again, forgetting my past experience. 🙄
These are so gamey and awful!! Do not buy. You’ll ruin the meal with these awful meatballs!!
Honestly left stunned, not sure what they thought they were doing shaping meat into balls? I have yet to understand this, as unique as it is I was unaware of how to prepare it, so I left them out to defrost and then ate them like chips, cannot recommend this item.
