Kung Pao Style Turkey Meatballs

Just a quick one today, since a couple people asked for the recipe for this one. These meatballs are sweet, spicy, moist and delicious... everything you could want in a Asian style meatball. I like to serve them with rice and a garnish of scallion (I was out of them when I made this last night... boo!) I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Kung Pao Style Turkey Meatballs

Ingredients for meatballs:

1# Lean ground turkey

2 cloves minced garlic

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1/2 cup finely minced onion

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 Tablespoon Chili Garlic Sauce (I used this:

1 whole egg, beaten

4 Tablespoons flour

1/3 cup old fashioned oats


3 Tablespoons lower sodium soy sauce

2 Tablespoons Sriracha

1 Table spoon garlic chili sauce (same as above)

3 Tablespoons honey

1/2-1 Tablespoon sesame seeds


1: Preheat oven to 400F

2: Line a large cookie sheet with foil (I used the non stick foil and needed no oil spray)

3: Mix turkey, garlic, ginger, onion, salt, pepper, garlic chili sauce, egg, flour and oats until well combined.

4: Form meatballs. Use a tablespoon measure to size. I got 18-20 meatballs from this mixture.

5: Place on cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes, turning once half way to brown evenly.

6: Mix sauce ingredients in a large enough bowl to hold cooked meat balls for coating.

7: When meatballs are cooked, add to the sauce bowl and toss gently to coat... serve with remaining sauce drizzled over them.

Makes 4 servings.
