    These meatballs are spicy and yummy.Very satisfying. I doubled the recipe and froze them for later! Tip: Use a melon-baller to form meatballs, and Bake at 400 degrees on a cookie sheet for 12 minutes. Couldn't be easier! - 8/23/09

    Mama Mia! That's A Spicy Meat-a-ball! I lowered the cals a bit more & upped the fiber a LOT by using 1/4 cup oat bran instead of bread crumbs-that worked out great. Used Italian style turkey sausage too. Added a touch of ketchup, baked at 350 for 1/2 hr and MAN ARE THEY GOOD! - 2/11/11

    These are fantastic! The only thing I would change is about 1/8 of a cup more breadcrumbs. I also used a whole egg instead of 2 egg whites and they turned out perfectly! - 4/2/09

    I looooove these meatballs! I like to put them over penne pasta with a red sauce. I also add about a tsp. of Worcestershire sauce to give it a little extra zip. The whole family loves these. - 1/19/10

    This was an absolute delicious recipe! My husband who is a meatball lover said these were the best he'd ever had and would like more to be used on hoagies in the very near future! Thank you for sharing the recipe, I followed it exactly and it was perfect! - 1/14/10

    Very good!! I added some basil and used whole wheat spaghetti and prego heart healthy sauce with some added onions and muchrooms. My husband said he could barely tell the difference between the ground beef ones I made and these. - 5/18/13

    I added marinara and made sub sandwiches. I served the subs with red and yellow peppers, onions, and lettuce. My whole family liked them. I will make them again soon, maybe with whole wheat pasta next time. - 1/23/09

  • These are great! The breadcrumbs and egg help a lot with the moisture. I make them all the time and I change up the spices. Freezing them is an excellent idea! - 10/29/14

  • Good but skipped the cheese and continued with the egg white. Add a little chili or jalapeno peppers. Smashing! - 9/10/13

  • this is a good starting base recipe for turkey meatballs. for me I needed a lot more spice, so i put in chopped green chilies as well and used cornflake crumbs. the cheese is definitely optional, you don't really need the extra cals if you season them right - 4/8/13

  • I made these and WOW was I impressed, didn't think turkey would taste better than regular ones made from ground beef. These could easily be pre-made and frozed for those nights you don't have a lot of time to cook. - 4/7/13

  • I eat these about four times a week. I either put them in some whole wheat pasta, mix with marinara sauce and mozzarella and toast on a sandwich thin for a meatball sub, or slice up and sprinkle on a pita pizza - 2/6/13

  • These little meatballs pack a punch in a wonderfully spicy way. Served with marinara and farfalle with snap peas, YUM! I used the smaller package of ground turkey (12 oz) , but didn't alter the measurements on the other ingredients. Turned out perfect. Worth trying. Definitely. - 2/5/13
