Turkey and Lamb Meatballs

Using some of my canned and frozen tomato sauce from last summer, I made a wonderful spaghetti sauce this morning. As it simmered on the stove, I thought that I would like to make meatballs too but I had no ground beef.  What I found while digging through my freezer was ground turkey and ground lamb and so a new and very delicious meatball recipe was created.
 I grated 1 cup of my homemade sandwich bread into a bowl. Then added 1 T. of sun-dried tomato paste, 3 T. Italian seasoning, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, 1 small minced onion and 2 tsp. granulated garlic.

Then I added 1 large egg, 3 T. buttermilk, 1 pound ground turkey and about 1/2 pound of ground lamb.  Mix this thoroughly and cook a small piece to taste for seasoning.

Form into small balls and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

These are good served with spaghetti but they would make very good sandwiches too.

They freeze very well.
