Excellent! I made 1/2 recipe, for just me and too much in my freezer so I just wanted to try. I still have some for lunch too. I used fresh parsley, a bit more garlic ... just because I love garlic and reg sour cream. Oh, I had 1/4 red onion in the fridge so I thin sliced and added in, but that certainly didn't change the taste of the meatballs and sauce. I was happy. No changes. As is would be fine. I highly doubt my fresh parsley and more garlic changed much. It is a great recipe! I will definitely make again. This would be a fun party night making different meatball sandwiches. Could be fun! Thank You!

I can't beleive I forgot to review this! We had this for dinner 2 Fridays ago, and it was WONDERFUL. I did have to ad lib a bit on some of the spices, I did not have driend mint or lemon pepper. I made the addition of coriander, a tiny tad bit of turmeric & cardamom. We also did add salt. I would think that if you did not have sour cream you could also use yogurt in the sauce, so this recipe seems really versatile. We really enjoyed it and I can't wait to have it again. Thanks so much for posting.

This made an excellant pita sandwich!! I did add a bit of salt to the turkey mix and used all fresh herbs from the garden. We loved the hint of mint!! I used no fat sour cream and added a quarter of a red pepper, chopped, to the sauce. Very easy and quick supper, thanks for posting. We will enjoy them again!!
