Cajun spice adds a nice kick to these turkey meatballs, which are coated in breadcrumbs but baked, not fried, to give them a crisp exterior without all the fat. The recipe below is delicious served with rice or over buttered noodles. You could even serve these meatballs with a Cajun-spiced corn casserole.
Another excellent way to serve these meatballs is as an hors d'oeuvre. Make the meatballs quite small, and when they're cooked, spear each on a toothpick. Serve on a platter with a choice of dipping sauces: Barbecue sauce or buffalo hot wing sauce are two tasty options.
