With the holidays coming up, I have been trying to top myself year after year with appetizers and snacks everyone will enjoy… I think I just hit jackpot with these Fried Turkey Meatballs!!!!! These are super moist, yet crispy. They are the perfect little bite with a bunch of flavor. Yes, I am still drooling from this recipe!

I used my standard “breading” mixture to get the most perfect crust! These will go fast, so make sure you stock up! You can make the meatballs in advance and when you’re ready to fry em up, just stick them in the breading and there ya go!
