Italian Turkey Meatballs

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Montana Heart Song

I have to use turkey or chicken instead of beef or pork for one family member. These meatballs have a lot of flavor, even cold. Serve with any sauce or in soup,or for meatball sandwiches.

These turned out quite nice with a bit of sauce poured over at serving. I used ground turkey, omitted the oil, the alpine seasoning (that's a new one on me..what's in it?!)and the crumbs for rolling in. What I liked was the flavour of the Italian seasoning and how quick these were from prep to table. Good, wholesome fare. Thanks, Montana Heart Song for posting.
