I am a huge alligator fan, and these meatballs were really good. Also, if you're not in a place to run out and buy some gator meat, www.allamericangator.com is a great place to order it.

I love alligator, and this was great. However I can not get alligator any more, Is there anything someone would suggest to use in place of it with a close to it taste and texture?...Thanks

I didn't have gator meat. I made them with ground turkey and they were delicious! Thanks.
