Turkey Meatballs

I am in love with meatballs.  Unfortunately, I haven’t found any meatballs at any restaurant (locally) that are gluten-free.  Which stinks.  However, I love making them (and personally think mine would taste better anyhow!).  See my yummy turkey balls below (that just does NOT sound right).  You can substitute red meat if you would like.
