Asian Turkey Meatballs

Since my parmesan turkey meatballs were such a success with Eric (who is typically anti-ground turkey) I thought I'd push my luck and try a different turkey meatball recipe. How could I go wrong with hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and toasted sesame seeds? Answer is: I couldn't! With two successful ground turkey dishes, Eric says he'll happily eat any ground turkey dish I serve.

Recipe adapted from here.

20 ounces ground turkey
3 tablespoons plus1 teaspoon sesame oil, divided
1/2 cup Panko
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 egg
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons green onions, chopped
Toasted sesame seeds, garnish

1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, Panko, ginger, egg, garlic and green onions. With your hands, combine ingredients well. Shape meat into golf ball size meatballs (I made about 20) and transfer them to the cookie sheet. Brush meatball with the 3 tablespoons sesame oil.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through.

While the meatballs cook, prepare sauce. In a saucepan, stir hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and ginger together. Over medium heat, heat sauce until hot. 

Pour sauce over meatballs, garnish with toasted sesame seeds, and serve.
