The Yummy, Super Easy Turkey (Gluten-free) Meatballs My Son Made & We All Loved

As my son grows we connect in different ways. One thing we love to do together these days is cook. We doubled this recipe and enjoyed these meatballs for dinner and then they made great after school healthy snacks. If your child's school is nut free these would be a perfect little 'school food' addition!
