There are just some days that either I don’t have time to cook or I don’t want to cook. No matter how much you enjoy cooking, it’s a true fact. There are just some days that something easy sounds spectacular. It is harder, however, to find products that are lactose free for these days.
On a whim, I purchased Shelton’s Turkey Meat Balls. For me, it was a strange whim for a few reasons: (a) I grew up eating my mom’s homemade Italian meatballs, so the thought of frozen meatballs is a bit out of left field; (b) if I’m going to have meatballs, they’re certainly not going to be turkey meat; and (c) they spell their meatballs as “meat balls” (note the space). Regardless, I bought them. And I cooked them. And I promptly returned to the store the next chance I got to buy two more packages.
They were good! Well-seasoned, nice texture and bite-sized. Most importantly, they were lactose/dairy free. If I could buy a larger package, I would definitely put these out as hors d’oeuvres at a party. I’m really lucky my husband wasn’t that hungry because I ignored the side dishes and kept eating the meatballs! Definitely a winner in my book.
