Norweigan Turkey Meatballs
These authentic Norweigan turkey meatballs are the perfect recipe to use up all your leftover turkey with. They are lovely served with creamy mash and braised red cabbage and apple. As they have cream and a raw egg in we recommend that you eat on the day of making or freeze. You could also swap the cream for half fat Elmlea.
