Healthy Turkey Meatballs

Do your kids like meatballs?

Mine do! I often buy frozen meatballs from the grocery store but since our family’s eating healthier I’m not comfortable buying the frozen brands with preservatives. Who knows what meat parts are in there!!

I tried out these turkey meatballs & they were a hit!

Now these are definitely more work than just buying them at the store but much healthier! I made a double batch & then froze half of them for another meal!
