Ground Turkey Meatball Soup recipe

A perfect cold weather soup, which will warm you up. This delicious ground turkey meatball soup will become your favorite for its simplicity and tastefulness. It is a nice and healthy soup to enjoy with your family.

For this soup, you can use both minced turkey breast or turkey shoulder, both taste good. The difference is that turkey breast meat is dryer, has less calories and less fats than turkey shoulder meat. Regarding meatball forming, try to form little meatballs as they will taste and cook better.

I love to make it once I drive to a local store which has fresh turkey meat. Usually I buy about 2,5kg of ground turkey and prepare from it: turkey meatballs, turkey cutlets and turkey meatball soup.
