Marinara Turkey Meatballs

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Reddyrat

I found this recipe in Taste of Home's Light and Tasty magazine. It was pretty easy to do and very tasty. You might want to add salt to the meatballs. I prefer more salt rather than less, but it's not necessary.

Very Yummy! Moist and a good flavor. Even my husband like them.
I found this looking for dairy & egg free meatball options for my daughter (allergies). As long as you choose your breadcrumbs correctly, this covers it.
I followed all ingredients to the tee. Only thing different was that I baked them in the oven at 350 for about 12 minutes (until 165). I am too nervous to broil anything. Finished them off in the sauce.
