Quick Turkey Swedish Meatballs

This is another recipe from the cookbook the women in my mom's family put together.  Aunt Marlene shared this recipe for Swedish Meatballs and I've made it a couple times. The husband loves it, probably because there is so much meat! This recipe simmers the meatballs in alfredo sauce, but Aunt Marlene told me she also puts the meatballs on hoagies and covers them in marina sauce for a delicious meatball sandwich. The meatballs are super easy and quick and I like them on whole wheat egg noodles, but they would be great with spaghetti or covered with BBQ sauce for an easy appetizer.
Aunt Marlene's Quick Turkey Swedish Meatballs

1 20 oz package of ground turkey
1 egg
2 tablespoons of dried onion bits
1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
Dash of pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt - I used more since we love garlic
1 teaspoon salt

Mix all together in large bowl and form into 20 meatballs
In a large heavy pan slowly heat 2 15 ounce jars of alfredo sauce (since I couldn't find mushroom alfredo sauce, I also added in 2 cans of mushrooms) Drop meatballs into sauce and simmer gently for about 30 minutes, keeping the pan covered. Turn the meatballs every 10 minutes to cook evenly.
Serve over cooked noodles or rice.
**Note: the meatballs can be made the night before for better firmness. Cover and refrigerate until ready for sauce.
