I really loved these meatballs! The different spices really make them special. I thought the gravy was lacking a little something so I added salt and pepper to taste. I made a couple of changes, using ground turkey instead of beef and potato bread crumbs instead of potatoes.

The sauce is rich and a bit heavy, but these meatballs have great flavor.
