Southwestern Mini Turkey Meatballs

When we were growing up, our mom had three “go-to” recipes that she’d serve when she entertained guests that she knew were crowd-pleasers. One of these dishes was a meatball dish and her guests always would ask her for the recipe. When we saw this turkey meatball recipe it immediately made us think of her dish and we knew we had to give it a whirl. These are made using Dannon® OIKOS® Greek nonfat yogurt and though they are made using lean turkey, you’d never know it because the yogurt keeps these pups super moist!
