Asian Turkey Meatballs


AuthorWillow StevensCategory

Yields1 Serving

 1 lb ground turkey
 ½ cup finely chopped onion
 ½ finely chopped bell pepper
 ¼ cup breadcrumbs
 2 eggs
 ¾ tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp black pepper
 2 tbsp olive oil
 ½ cup heated plum sauce
 2 finely sliced scallions
 1 tsp sesame seeds

1

Place the turkey, onion, bell pepper, bread crumbs, eggs, garlic powder, salt and black pepper in a large bowl. Using your hands, knead all the ingredients until well blended. If the mixture doesn’t hold together, add a bit more bread crumbs. Make 18 meatballs approximately the same size.

2

Heat the olive oil to a medium temperature in a large skillet. I like to use my cast iron skillet, but any will do. Add the meatballs and stir to brown on all sides. Cover and allow them to simmer 10 to 15 minutes.

3

Place the meatballs on a platter and top with the plum sauce, scallions and sesame seeds. Serve at once with noodles or brown rice.
