Turkey Meatballs Recipe

I have never found a turkey meatballs recipe that I really liked that much, until I tried these!  The addition of the spices and my homemade spaghetti sauce recipe, made them delicious!

I got the Turkey at ALDI using their 93% lean, so they are about as healthy as you can get! Needless to say, I was SHOCKED by how tender and full of flavor this turkey meatballs recipe is.

First, I recommend that before you start making this turkey meatballs recipe, that you take a look at my homemade spaghetti sauce recipe.

You can make an entire pot of sauce for under $5.00 and it will make these meatballs absolutely shine!

Okay, back to the meatballs….

I had Lauren take the first bite; she looked at me and said, “These are amazing.  Like really really good!”  They are so moist and flavorful that you won’t know you are eating something healthy!
