Garlic Stuffed Turkey Meatballs

I try to avoid fried foods, but these turkey meatballs were just what my taste buds were calling for today. (If that means a few extra minutes on the exercise bike, then so be it.) They started off relatively simple... ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary, but then quickly elevated to superstar status with the addition of roasted garlic cloves in the center of each meatball. After sizzling in a skillet with a few tablespoons of canola oil, the meatballs had a delightfully crunchy crust surrounding a mouthwatering center. The deeply savory taste was balanced by a squeeze of fresh lemon and a simple salad of tomato and arugula. Bright and fresh mixed with hearty and satisfying... what more could you ask for?
