Turkey Meatballs with Teriyaki Sauce

I recently came up with this recipe a few days ago and couldn’t wait to share it on the Bee’s Kitchen. I m trying to hold myself from eating all of them. Until today, I was never a big fan of turkey – I always told myself I didn’t like turkey and I was wrong. I just needed to come up with the perfect recipe. I think that baking them in the oven is easy and also much healthier compared to frying them. The texture is a little bit hard on the outside but soft on the inside and very tasty.
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 3 tbsp of garlic powder
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat bread crumbs or regular bread crumbs
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
For the teriyaki sauce:
  • 8 tbsp of mirin
  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 8 tbsp of brown sugar
  • 4 clove of garlic minced
  • 4 tbsp of fresh ground ginger
  • a dash of red pepper flakes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey with the scallions, carrots, bread crumbs and garlic powder.

Prepare the soy sauce: mix all of the ingredients and simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Pour half the soy sauce into the prepared turkey, Mix very well. Shape the turkey into medium size balls.

Grease a large baking pan and place the meatballs. Bake for about 35 minutes.

Before serving, pour over or on the side the teriyaki marinade.
