These meatballs with spicy Italian turkey sausage, spicy Italian ground turkey, Cheddar cheese, egg, onion, and seasoning are great for snack or in your spaghetti. I use these as a great snack item. I use small snack-size bags, place three in each bag, and freeze. I'll have one serving of three as a snack by removing them from snack bag and reheating them for 60 to 75 seconds.

I wanted to make this a little cheaper what I did was buy two rolls of ground turkey (on sale for a dollar a piece) and add spices to fake italian sausage (sage crushed fennel seeds dried parsley crushed red pepper flake onion powder garlic powder little brown sugar). I made these into breakfast patties by just making 1/4 cup sized balls flattening them out and baking them on a greased baking sheet. The whole family loved them. These are good alone as breakfast patties but they also make EXCELLENT breakfast sandwiches! Read More
