Asian Turkey Meatballs

Two of my favorite things: Asian food and meatballs come together to make these amazing Asian Turkey Meatballs. These meatballs are tender, flavorful, juicy and loaded with tons of sauce.

I baked these meatballs instead of pan frying. It makes it a lot easier to cook the meatballs and they can be cooked in one batch. The meatballs still get browned on both sides (just make sure to flip them halfway).

These Asian Meatballs only take 30 minutes to make. Simply combine all of the meatball ingredients together and mix until combined, making sure not to over mix. Shape into 12 equal size meatballs and bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cooked through. These meatballs also can be frozen and tossed with the sauce before serving.

I like to add a little Sriracha sauce to my meatballs for an extra kick. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions too!

Serve as an appetizer or as a meal with some fried rice or noodles.

Can I freeze these meatballs?

Yes, I prefer to freeze the baked meatballs without the sauce. You can partially bake them and finish cooking them when you pull them out of the freezer. They keep in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 3 months. When you are ready to eat defrost the meatballs, make the sauce and bake the meatballs in a 350 degree oven until warmed through or simply reheat the meatballs in the warmed sauce! They also are great to throw in the crockpot and cook on low until heated through!
