Turkey Meatballs in White Sauce

Gluten and Dairy Free Turkey Meatballs in White Sauce at GlutenFreeHomemaker.com

My husband and son have really been enjoying these turkey meatballs in white sauce lately. My son is not a huge fan of beef, and he likes the flavor and softer texture of the turkey based meatballs.

The sauce is, of course, optional, but it makes a nice dinner if served with rice or pasta. You could also make smaller meatballs and use them with barbecue or other sauce as an appetizer.

This white sauce is dairy free, unlike many that use milk and sour cream.
