Asian Turkey Meatballs

Asian Turkey Meatballs


Simple to make, quick clean up & tasty.

I mentioned this at the nutrition info session, but I usually double any recipe I make. To keep things simple Kyle & I each only cook one night per week (Mon/Tues) and we eat leftovers the second half of the week (Wed/Thur). So this recipe makes a lot but it’s the perfect amount for 2 nights of dinners for us. If you’re not sharing or you don’t like leftovers, cut it in half.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

2 lb ground turkey (93/7%)

3 tsp minced garlic

2 whole green onions both green and white parts, sliced

2 large eggs

1 tsp sesame oil

2 TBSP Organic Tamari Sauce (you can use Soy sauce, but Tamari is a healthier option IMO). I use this one. (publix)

2 TBSP Sky Valley Teriyaki Sauce (I love this brand and it is becoming harder to find. I think Whole Foods still carries it).

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Wisk eggs in a large bowl and then mix in garlic, sesame oil, green onions, tamari & teriyaki sauce. Once everything is mixed together add in the ground turkey and mix until everything is incorporated well.

If you think meatballs are a pain or take forever to prepare, you’re doing it wrong. If you cheat with a cookie scoop like me it takes 2 minutes to make 36 meatballs and your hands aren’t covered in raw meat either. Yeah it doesn’t make perfectly round meatballs, but who cares. They taste the same and no one has time to hand roll 36 meatballs.

So line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and get to scooping. I put them really close together so I can fit them all on one tray. They don’t spread like cookies so don’t worry. They don’t need space. (See pic below)

Bake at 400 for 7ish minutes. Remove tray and flip each meatball over with a fork. Bake for 7-8 minutes more and they should be done. (15 minutes bake time total)

I served mine with rice & some pre-shredded broccoli slaw that I quickly sautéed for 2 minutes. I like to garnish with extra Teriyaki sauce & scallions.
