Turkey gives a different twist to these slightly sweet and spicy meatballs. For the holidays, I serve them on a tray lined with parsley and garnished with red pepper or pimientos.

"This was fun to make and so much better than buying something frozen from Walmart. What a nice change on the sauce from the standard bbq type. The guests loved them and we ate the leftovers the next day! Yummy!"
