I had a little neighborhood get-together yesterday. I wanted to bring something extra tasty.
And I love mini meatballs at parties. But I wanted to put a spin on traditional meatballs. So I made some Asian Meatballs. I was hoping to have some left over for the next night’s dinner. But guess what?? They were all eaten up super fast. And that makes me happy – they were so good!
Here’s how I made the Asian Meatballs. These are awesome as an appetizer and also would be SO good as a main course, over rice!
2 pounds of ground turkey
2/3 cups of panko bread crumbs
5 scallions, chopped up
2 large eggs
2 T. soy sauce
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 T. ginger
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of Teriyaki Sauce
1/2 cup dark molasses
- Combine the ground turkey in a bowl, with breadcrumbs, scallions, eggs, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper.
- Preheat oven to 400-degrees,
- Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray, and then make 1-inch meatballs with the mixture, space them apart on the cookie sheets.
- Pop the cookie sheets in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.
- Then add the meatballs to the crockpot.
- In a small bowl, mix up the Teriyaki Sauce and dark molasses and then pour it over the crock pot. Turn the crock pot on low or warm until ready to serve.
