This Turkey Bacon Meatballs Recipe is a delicious meat dish to serve with pasta, delicious for a potluck or weeknight meal.

I’m a mom of 3 teens and I absolutely love it when our family comes together. Last week even with the holidays–a little bit of honest truth here–it takes effort to bring everyone together for dinner. Especially with social kids, their many friends, jobs, sports, so much to do … our children are pulled in many directions.

But … once we’re together, it’s time to relax.

Often we’ll grab our plates of food and head up to watch our favorite television show, or in the summer, soccer games, or we’ll even sit together in the living room and just talk and eat. A very non-traditional way at times, but we love to change it up!
