Easy turkey meatballs

These lovely little meatballs are a great way to stay healthy and keep your protein intake up during the week. Packed with parmesan and herbs they really bring the flavour and stay beautiful and juicy on the inside, while the outside is nice and golden.

You can serve them with a side of mash and broccoli or stuff them into a pita pocket with fresh salad and a dollop of natural yoghurt mixed with sweet chilli sauce. Yum!

  • 1 cup bread crumbs
