This is a nice change from the ground beef meatballs, low in calories but high in taste. You can use any sauce to top it. Like cucumber sauce, creamy lime sauce. Or what I use is a garlic sauce..All still really enhance the flavor of the turkey meatballs.. I away use a flat bread for lighter and tasty.
