I love experimenting in the kitchen. These tasty meatballs made with turkey were a family-pleasing results the first time I made them. They're so good, people don't always realize they're good for you as well.—Mary Stifflemire, Lexington, Texas

"Since I had a pound of ground beef in freezer, thought I'd try this dish using it. Made beef gravy, threw small can of mushrooms in with it, and served over mashed potatoes. Delicious!!!"
