Teriyaki Meatballs

On the first Sunday of each month we have all of our children to dinner. Each one of them definitely has their favorite that are certain repeats throughout the year, but we try to have a variety as well. Sometimes it’s just a variation on a theme. Like “Teriyaki Meatballs”.

The sauce is new but the meatballs are a variation of our “Turkey Burger” recipe. Make the recipe the same but form into about 2 dozen meatballs. Place meatballs on 2 parchment paper lined baking sheets.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

  1. Yum. These meatballs sound great. We actually buy something similar from Costco but it’s great to be able to make them at home. I love that you add just a little pork to your ground turkey I bet that helps make them much more tender. I’ve got to try this.
