    I used organic ground chicken, cilantro, worscershire sauce, and quick oats in place of some of the ingredients. Turned out great!

    These were great. I doubled the recipe and cooked half in bbq/jam sauce and the other half in tomato basil sauce. Yum!

    Loved I would make it again I used a little less salt and pepper, and I used jalapeno ketchup instead of the tomato paste' I only used a fourth of a cup of breadcrumbs.

    The very best meatballs!! Hands down

    It was easy. I cut back on the salt and pepper. I think I used too much garlic. The meatballs had a bit of a kick to them. I used them in my spaghetti sauce. I will try again w/less garlic.

    I made this recipe and the meatballs broke up pretty easily. I served with marinara on sub rolls for an easy dinner.

    The outside texture was like skin in texture & color. I think this would have a better texture if meatballs were pan seared on all sides first. It would help it stay really moist inside too.

    Great, just missing Parmesan!

    Easy and tasty. I skipped on the tomatoe paste and used a little soy sauce instead. Overall a fast and lean dish

    Very good. Very easy and fast . My grandkids (16 yrs) loved it. I will be making this again. I had a small problem with them sticking to pan but I didn't add enough oil to pan I also turned them over about 1/2 way through cooking.

    Delicious! Made it a month ago and turned out great (I ground up some gluten free pretzels to replace bread crumbs so my whole family could eat it) Going for round two today

    I used my own seasoning blend instead of the spices and I forgot the onion. But, the meatballs were easy to make and had good flavor.

    Tasty, I added paprika and a teaspoon of Worcester sauce.

    Usually turkey is kind of bland so I didn't know what to expect but this recipe was delicious! I substitute quinoa for the bread crumbs and it was still very tasty.

    Great! and extremely easy to make for a man who is not a cook and who is babysitting two hungry kids

    These are fabulous. Followed directions exactly and they're perfect and a lot leaner than traditional beef meatballs. Have also ran out of bread crumbs and substituted Parmesan cheese. Also just as good. They are so simple and don't require ingredients that are hard to find or that you'll only use once. Put them in sauce or use for an appetizer. Delicious

    These are delicious and so simple! The only thing I changed was using yellow onion instead of shallot and dried parsley instead of fresh (didn't have fresh on hand). They have a nice heat to it, I'm guessing that's from the pepper. Made these for my sister and she kept saying how she couldn't believe how moist they were. This recipe finally made me believe not ALL meatballs need a sauce. Made some homemade fries for the side dish :)

    My 14 yr old daughter made this recipe for us. Delicious! Only thing she did slightly different was to substitute red onions for the shallots.

    The meatballs were excellent even though I forgot to add the onions. I would suggest this dish to anyone searching for a quick lunch meal.

    These are amazing and not heavy since they are made with turkey instead of ground beef. I have made these several times now at my husband's request.
