    Made these last night. I forgot to pick-up carrots so I added finely diced red and orange sweet peppers. I used turkey stock instead of chicken broth. Other than that I followed the recipe. We loved them and I'll definitely make them again. Next time I'll remember the carrots but I'll still add the peppers and use the turkey stock.

    I actually tweeked the recipe a bit...I used carrots, celery, and onions, and Italian panco. This recipe has become a favorite at our house!

    These quickly become a family favourite, and have a permanent, solid spot in our dinner rotation as well as work potlucks. Amazingly juicy and full of flavour!

    I first made these as a beginner finger food for my 8 month old. I've made these several times now and they are always a big hit.

    OK I never write recipe reviews but these meatballs are AMAZING! Make the double batch as the recipe suggests because everyone will love them. My Greek Mother-in-Law who is an exceptional cook, gave them rave reviews as did my 6 year old daughter. Oh did I mention that they are healthy AND lo-cal too? Will be making these every week.

    These meatballs are so delicious...very moist and flavorful. They also reheat nicely in the microwave and go great with buttered egg noodles.

    Rated best meatballs by my family, including 4 kids! Tossed then in egg noodles and there was not a crumb left. This will now be a staple in my house

    These meatballs were moist and flavorful for a turkey meatball. I personally prefer them a bit spicier, but my family (including my three-year old) thought these were fantastic. The carrot and zucchini added nice texture and color to the meatballs. I halved the recipe but kept the veggie content the same, and they still came out great. These would work with a wide variety of side dishes. I do agree with another reviewer that they were too salty. Next time, I will cut the salt in half.

    These were delicious! The carrot adds an interesting texture and nice moisture to the final product. I added some garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes, but followed the recipe otherwise. (And to those commenting on salmonella - good lord. If you are making these with your children, clearly you can make sure they wash their hands afterwards. This risk of sickness is miniscule compare to the to fun and satisfaction of helping make a delicious dinner for their family.)
