Finally a solid recipe for turkey meatballs! I did not make the sandwiches, just made the meatballs. Was worried about cooking only in sauce rather than frying first. They were great - I let them simmer about 5-7 mins before I flipped and let the other side simmer. Sauce got flavored from the meat and cheese. I did cook for about 30 mins total. Very tasty, moist. I used Bertoli Tomato and Basil sauce, perfect weeknight dinner!

This recipe was a hit the first time I made it. The meatballs are even good alone! They would be really good in pasta too! I didn't change a thing...

This was so delicious! Very simple and it was a big hit with my husband. My only recommendation would be to let the meatballs cool in the fridge a little past 45 minutes - a few of them fell apart in the pot.

Best meatball sub I've ever had. The turkey meatballs are so moist and full of flavor. Use a good quality marinara sauce such as Bertoli. This will become a regular meal for our dinner rotations. Yummy! Check out my blog at: http://imapretendchef.blogspot.com/2011/06/turkey-meatball-subs.html

I thought the meatballs lacked flavor. If I make them again I will try browning the meatballs on all sides before cooking them in the sauce. The sandwich makes a beautiful presentation just didn't taste as good as it looked.

I used this recipe on Christmas Eve 2013 and everyone loved them! I used 1 pound of Turkey Italian Sausage links and 1 pound of ground turkey. I took off the sausage casings and mixed it all together. I also added some onion powder and black pepper to the mixture. These were a BIG hit on Christmas Eve!
