Give your potato an Italian-American accent with mini meatballs, a generous spoonful of tomato sauce, and a shower of grated Parmesan cheese. You can also halve large meatballs and tuck those into the opened potato. Feel free to use frozen meatballs, or your favorite recipe. Big thumbs up from the junior set on this one.

For super simple turkey meatballs, mix together 2 eggs, 1 cup Panko bread crumbs, ½ teaspoon each of oregano, Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, and 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Blend well, then using your hands blend in 1 pound ground turkey and 1 pound turkey sausage. Form the mixture into ½-inch balls and bake on an oiled baking sheet at 375°F for 20 minutes until cooked through.
