Turkey Meatballs that Taste Like Cheeseburgers
Lately, I have found out that ground turkey is not that bad after all. For years I stayed away from it like the plague, but recently, I took a liking to this healthier ground beef alternative. With the right balance of seasonings ground turkey can be made into delicious meals like these Turkey Cheeseburger Meatballs Recipe .
I added some shredded cheddar, onion, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, mustard, and a few other must-haves to make a very moist, and tasty finger food. We ate them like little appetizers without any sauce, and loved them. The best part is, turkey is healthier and 50% cheaper than ground beef these days!
I suppose you could make these Turkey Cheeseburger Meatballs in the crock pot, but I prefer baking them for that slightly crunchy outer skin, and juicy inside. These would make an awesome sub or grinder sandwich, and can be made ahead of time.
