Judi's Thai-Inspired Turkey MeatballsSubmitted by: TIME4JUDI
IntroductionGround turkey never tasted so good! Ground turkey never tasted so good!
2.5 lbs ground turkey
2 egg whites
2 tbs soy sauce
1/2 cup (1 bunch) chopped scallions
2 tbs grated ginger (finely minced if you don't have a ginger grater)
1 handful of fresh cilantro, minced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
2 tbs soy sauce
3 tbs lime juice
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs smooth peanut butter
2 tbs water
Turn and broil on second side until browned and slightly crisped.
In the meantime, combine all sauce ingredients (a whisk or hand blender makes the job easy).
Drizzle each serving (makes 10 servings, about 6 meatballs per serving) with 1 tbs sauce. Great served over brown rice, with steamed broccoli and portabello mushrooms!

I haven't really tried this *yet*, but I've got ground turkey breast thawing as I type this, so I will definitely be making this later on. I'm confident that the 5 star rating I gave it is the right one, but I'll let you know if I change my mind. - 5/22/09

Hope you actually enjoyed these! They've been a favorite in my house for a while!
Yummy! Hubby saw the turkey burger and said yuch, but after tasting the meatballs agree they tasted great. I would make extra sauce- I made the whole amount for one pound of turkey. Still enough for 2 meals for the 2 of us, but the extra sauce would be great. Served over noodles and spinach. - 11/13/07
