Veggie Turkey Meatballs


These easy to make Veggie Turkey Meatballs are a main staple in my house, I always make a big batch and keep them in the freezer for those times I don’t feel like cooking!

Pair them with a salad and you’ve got a quick, healthy meal packed with veggies, and high in protein and flavor!
