Yummy meatballs that I have used in several different recipes. They are very versatile. Try them in spaghetti and meatballs dish, "Meatball Sandwiches" or sweet and sour. You can find the ways I use them included in my recipe collection.

Wasted alot of meat on this one. 1/2 cup of white pepper is a bit much to me. I am surprised noone noticed or commented on it.

Delicious and greatly enjoyed with Linda's Busy Kitchen's Recipe #329379. :) I couldn't find turkey breakfast sausages so I made these with a blend of ground beef and ground veal/pork. I've found that mixing the meats always results in great flavour. The only additions I made were I added 3 cloves of minced garlic and some rosemary, sage and thyme. Thanks for sharing this super recipe. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

I gave this 4 stars because hubby really did like them. My opinion was that the sausage (I used regular pork sausage) over powered everything else. Next time I will try it with the turkey sausage or make it 3 pounds of ground beef and 1 pound of pork sausage. All in all they were good. Thanks for posting!
