It's time to meat the star!
Turkey meatballs are a lean alternative to ground beef and packed with protein.
Turkey isn't the most flavorful meat.
But a less flavorful meat is perfect for meatball recipes.
It allows the seasonings and the sauce to take center stage... which you want!
If you're like me you'll use extra lean turkey mean.
But here's the trick...
With less fat the meat won't stay together. So make sure when you roll your meatballs... you keep the meat cold.
Your balls with remain balls this way.
