My family is a real fan of this dish, the flavor of the creamy cream cheese on the bread with meatballs on it, just reminds you of a meatball sub! It's easy to make and sure to get raves!
- 78.07 ml chopped green onion
- 59.14 ml seasoned bread crumbs
- 44.37 ml grated parmesan cheese
- 453.59 g ground turkey
