I love this recipe as it’s so versatile. You can have the meatballs with sweet potatoes, rice or a lovely salad for dinner. Add to a wrap with lettuce and some salad, and you’ve a perfect lunch. Turkey is very lean and a great alternative to red meat. I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know how you get on if you attempt it! Grab loads more recipes like this here in our free tools section.
