This turkey meatball recipe offers the chance to really experiment with combinations and ingredients, which Andy Waters does brilliantly in this easy recipe. Turkey mince is lean and inexpensive and pairs well with stronger flavours, such as the sage and thyme used here. Grated apple adds a hint of sweetness to the turkey meatballs and helps keep them moist and tender throughout cooking.
Andy Waters helped put the Midlands on the gastronomic map when he won a Michelin star in 2003 for Edmunds. The award came within six months of opening and the restaurant went on to be named restaurant of the year by Harden's Guide.
