Ground turkey never tasted so good! Ground turkey never tasted so good!
Number of Servings: 10


    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


Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a large bowl, mixing well. Shape into approximately 60 meatballs (1-tbs size each) and broil in upper third of oven about 10 minutes.

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!

Number of Servings: 10

    I'm getting ready to make this. Taking it to work tomorrow. Any thoughts about how to keep it warm along with the sauce? - 5/9/12

    I have no idea what "Jo mama's" sauce is, but heck yeah this sauce rocks! Followed recipe except that I used crushed tomato's in place of tomato sauce. - 6/18/11

    Mmm...SO good! I too wish the sauce was thicker, and I also added more peanut butter. But my whole family loved it! It will definitely become a staple in our house. - 8/12/10

    This was delicious! I wish the sauce was a little thicker -- next time I may heat it up with some cornstarch to thicken it. Served it with brown rice, and some sauteed garlic, mushrooms, and bok choy. Yum yum yum! - 6/23/10
