Breaded Turkey Meatballs

Posted in Home Made Cooking

I like my food simple, I really do. Not because I’m lazy or because I want it ready fast, but because I think that this is the best kind of food the simple food. It goes well with everything, every time and anywhere. And this is exactly what these breaded meatballs are. My mom used to make these from chicken but of course all they had at the supermarket after thanksgiving is turkey so I said, why not? These meatballs are great right out of the pan but even greater the next day, when you can just slice them in half and put on a fresh piece of buttered bread. YUM!
