    NOTES: 1) You can stretch this recipe quickly and easily by mixing in a chub of turkey breakfast sausage (I use Jennie O brand) 2) If I'm in a hurry I substitute dehydrated minced onion and a T or two of water. 3) This can be mixed ahead of time and stored in the frig for a quick fix. Or shape the meatballs and freeze them! 4) This recipe also makes great burgers. 5) Using almond meal adds protein 6) I like to bake the meatballs, and serve them with my Rosemary Chili-Lime Squash. They're great together, and baking together saves energy :) I start the squash while I'm making the meatballs, so they don't overcook. 7) For appetizer, simply use a smaller scoop and cook a few minutes less. Super easy and delicious!
