I was looking through a Cooking Light magazine and found this delicious looking recipe. It did not disappoint. The original recipe calls for 90% lean ground sirloin. But turkey was on sale this week and that's what I used. It was still delicious. The family went back for seconds and everyone was happy. Gotta love that!

A very nice change from spaghetti and meatballs. Nutmeg can be substituted for the mace if you don't have it. You may also add a dash of cardamom to the meatballs or the sauce.

A very tasty, quick meal. If you use frozen meatballs, the preparation is about 15 minutes. A lot faster than going out for fast food or pizza, and so much healthier and cheaper!

Mix 3/4 cup of the water and 1/4 cup of the soup in a large bowl. Add meat, dry stuffing mix and eggs; mix lightly.


Divide meat mixture in half. Cover and refrigerate half of the meat mixture for up to 24 hours.
