  • 1 large egg

How To Make Asian Turkey Meatballs:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add turkey, breadcrumbs, garlic, green onions, egg, sesame oil and soy sauce. Mix with your hands until combined.


Grease a baking sheet with oil. Portion out 12 meatballs. (Working with slightly wet hands helps)


Place meatballs on the oiled baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes or until fully cooked, flipping halfway through.


Take out of the oven and toss with the Asian sauce.


Serve immediately and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.


Asian Sauce: Add all of the ingredients to a medium bowl and stir to combine. Set aside until meatballs are done cooking.

Recipe Notes:

If you are freezing the meatballs do not toss with sauce until ready to serve.
