Ingredients:

For the meatballs:

2 pounds 93% lean ground turkey

1 cup panko breadcrumbs (whole wheat preferred)

2 eggs

1/4 cup green onions, chopped

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the sauce:

1/4 cup Sriracha

2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, Mix all the ingredients for the meatballs. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls- roughly 40 meatballs, and spaced evenly on 2 baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake meatballs for 20-25 minutes or until browned and cooked through.
  4. While meatballs are cooking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking continuously. Reduce and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes (the sauce will thicken).
  5. Once meatballs are finished cooking, toss in the thickened sauce.
  6. Serve with your choice of vegetables – I recommend roasted Brussels sprouts or broccoli.
