Beef & Turkey Meatballs

Beef & Turkey Meatballs
Print Recipe
Meatball Quinoa Soup, Meatballs in your favourite sauce on pasta and Meatball Subs in a marinara sauce are 3 meal ideas. If kids are doing this recipe I would suggest only 1 recipe split between 2 or 3 families so the kids don't get overwhelmed by the rolling involved. Feel free to adjust the mixture of ground meats - all beef, all turkey or a mixture of beef and pork are also delicous.
