One Pan Meatball Skillet

Hi Guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am going to be sharing with you a super easy dinner. A One Pan Meatball Skillet! This is a super easy weeknight dinner that can be made in under 30 minutes!


This dish is super easy and takes less than 30 minutes to throw together! Best of all it’s made in one pan!

I love meatballs! They are one of my favorite comfort foods. It doesn’t hurt that these are super easy to make and can be made in one pan either.

I lightened up the meatballs a bit with ground turkey. You can always substitute a blend of beef and pork instead of ground turkey. Enjoy!

  1. This looks amazing. Last night I attempted to make something I found on pinterest, it had acorn squish and eggs. It came out good- but was not filling. I but it in the board called Brunch of Breakfast. Have a great day.

    • Deedra if you make this, we’d love to hear how it turned out for you. Sorry your last dish wasn’t very filling. :o{
