Hands down the best meatballs I've ever had in my life. No kidding! I can't believe how good it tastes. I served it for some coworkers last night and they told it was the first thing they thought about when they woke up this morning. Lol. I used Recipe #116412 for this recipe. I made extra and just put it on the pasta. So simple and so great tasting. Thank you very much for sharing this one of a kind mouthful of deliciousness.

  3. Mix until combined.
  4. Form turkey mixture into meatballs, approximately 1 3/4 inch in diameter.
  5. Stuff a mozzarella cheese cube into each meatball and seal the meat around the cheese so it can't leak out.
