Asian Turkey Meatballs

After enjoying the Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese recipe that Allison posted before, I noticed that I had some leftover panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs). I was not exactly sure what to cook for dinner tonight so I decided to get creative with the leftover bread crumbs. Here is a lean recipe that everyone is sure to love.


Asian Turkey Meatballs
3 Gals and a Kitchen

½ c panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs)
¼ c chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 TBSP crushed red pepper
1 TBSP oregano
1 TBSP sesame seeds
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 lb lean ground turkey
2 TBSP soy sauce

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

In a medium bowl, mix together bread crumbs, onion, garlic, crushed red pepper, oregano, sesame seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Add the turkey and soy sauce and mix until combined. Roll the meat mixture into 1½-inch balls.

Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 10-12 minutes. Lower the heat
to medium-low; let cook until the meatballs are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Serve over thin pasta (i.e. Asian rice noodles). To complete your meal, add peanuts and chopped green onions on top.
