Italian Meatballs (Turkey and Pork)

Submitted by: PKAYKAT

Introduction

Low Fat Meatballs, (Almost half the fat compared to commercial pre-cooked brands) This can be reduced further by removing the pork altogether and replacing with chopped Amylu Andouille Sausage, but the bulk pork sausage holds the meatballs together better.
