TASTE BUDS: Apple Asian Turkeyballs

We have many go to recipes that I use over and over again, but sometimes… sometimes you just want something new. And then there are other times when you just want a distraction from whats going on in your life, and you are trying not to bake cake. And sometimes you want something new AND to be distracted. Which results usually in me either digging through my mountain of cookbooks or surfing online until something sounds good. Generally this takes several hours. Today I made a new dish, something combined from two different recipes that I found to get an Asian infusion into a turkeyball recipe and it was so super tasty.


For the turkeyballs
1 pound ground turkey
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
½ cup grated finely chopped carrots
2 garlic cloves
1 egg

For the Sauce
1 cup apple cider
¼ cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
2 teaspoons corn starch
¼ cup chopped scallions for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. In a large bowl mix ground turkey, bread crumbs, carrots, garlic and egg.
3. Roll into tablespoon sized cocktail balls and put on prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Turkeyballs can be made the day before. I love making extra to freeze as well.
5. Place all ingredients for the sauce in a large skillet. Over medium heat bring sauce to a boil and cook for 3 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Add in the meatballs, coat the meatballs with the sauce, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
6. Serve over rice garnished with scallions.
