Juicy meatballs made with lean ground turkey breast and seasoned with garlic, fresh ginger, and a touch of soy. They do not taste oriental as the seasonings may suggest, but easy to tweak in that direction as desired. All that and low fat, too!

Very flavourful turkey meatballs! We loved them and I will be making them again. Loved the touch of ginger. Served them with whole wheat spaghetti and some zippy homemade sauece I had in the freezer. thanks for posting one I will use regularly. In reference to another reviewer, I would serve these as an appetizer, made smaller with a zippy dip, could even use them to make a meadball sub, a nice versitile recipe with lots of flavour.

Sounds great.. question though. What do you eat them with? Just as an appetizer? I can't see, actually I never ever would eat these with pasta... so I'm just wondering if you eat these with anything else?
