Sriracha-Sesame Turkey Meatball Sandwiches

These were just outstanding. The meatballs are super moist and tasty. I love sesame seeds... can you tell?

The addition of the sriracha mayonnaise really spices them up even more. The original meatball recipe came from Kalyns Kitchen. The mayonnaise recipe came from the Insane Chicken.
