How to put your own spin on dinner with teriyaki turkey meatballs

December 9, 2014

Are you tired of the same, old turkey dinner every special occasion? Perhaps you're looking to try something new and exciting without completely steering clear of the traditional meat. Why don't you try making some teriyaki turkey meatballs? They're quick and full of flavor. Get started by gathering your materials.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove of garlic

Once you have everything you need, head to the kitchen and get to cooking. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grab a large mixing bowl and toss in the garlic, turkey, egg, teriyaki sauce and the bread crumbs. These are all of the essentials to make your meatballs. All that you have to do is shape and bake them. Use a spoon or some other round utensil to form the mixture into balls and place them on a baking sheet that's covered in parchment paper. 

Place the tray in the oven and let the meatballs cook for about 20 minutes. Put a toothpick through the center or cut into them to make sure they're cooked all the way through. Once they're nice and golden brown, they're ready for serving. How you present them is entirely up to you. 

Serving recommendations
Cook up some rice, pasta or veggies and put the meatballs on top of those dishes, or put them out on the table by themselves. Save yourself some time by cooking these a few days prior to your dinner party, and place them in the freezer until you're ready to cook. After you've put them in the freezer, you can either cook them in a saute pan or pop them in the oven to bring them back to life.

Simmer them on top of the stove in a little vegetable or chicken stock to enhance the flavor. Arrange them nicely on a serving plate and watch them go one-by-one as people are eager to try something new at your next sit-down event.
