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.
