Turkey Meatballs fit for Lady and the Tramp.

We knocked these up recently as I felt we needed a little comfort food. I asked my little one what she wanted for dinner and she asked for Moussaka. We settled on meatballs, mainly as they were easier for a tired mummy to make and also as I thought she may enjoy helping me, turns out I made a good decision. Whilst some chopped tomatoes, garlic and herbs simmered to make a sauce myself and the toddler mixed spices into the mince, then squished, squelched and rolled our meatballs out. Then they cooked whilst we watched Spot the Dog. Perfect weekend afternoon activity!

These are gluten free, low in fat, high in protein and the vegetables make it a great all round meal.
