Chart-Topping Turkey Meatballs: The Perfect Appetizer

Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude towards everything. Spending the day with friends and family is a symbolism that only has one meaning—you’re grateful that you have them in your life. This Thanksgiving recipe is something that everyone will enjoy eating together. Everyone at the table was surprised by this! We still had that huge turkey for sentimental purposes, but this one was another star of the night.

Everyone loved its sweet taste and at the same time the convenience of eating it. I will definitely make this again outside of this celebration.
