I love to make meatballs with 99% fat free ground turkey, simply because it is healthier. One thing we all know about turkey is that it lacks flavor; hence, I make my business to create flavor combinations to make them yummy!

Add the gravy ingredients to the skillet until it begins to simmer, at that point, add the cornstarch and broth mix until you see that the gravy begins to thicken.
At that point, add the turkey balls and simmer for few minutes. Done.
