Honey Sriracha Ground Turkey Meatballs

These Honey Sriracha Ground Turkey Meatballs are the best meatballs I have ever had. The best part is, I don't feel guilty eating them because they are made with ground turkey.

I typically just buy meatballs from the frozen section of the grocery store, but I have recently learned how easy it is to make your own from scratch.

The sauce that goes on top of these meatballs is incredible and the entire recipe comes together in a short amount of time, which makes these a perfect weeknight meal.

If you don’t want to make your own meatballs, you could totally get a bag of ground turkey meatballs at the store and then mix up this sauce to put on top!

how to make honey sriracha ground turkey meatballs

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Lightly spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. I used an olive oil based, non-stick cooking spray. You could also use a butter based spray.

Step 3: In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients for meatballs. This includes the ground turkey, whole wheat breadcrumbs, eggs, onion, garlic powder, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and red pepper.

Mix until thoroughly combined.

Sometimes, I find it easiest to use my hands to combine everything.

Step 4: Shape into balls that are about 1 1/2 inches in size (should make about 35-40 meatballs). Set each meatball on the prepared baking sheet.

Cook for 20-25 minutes or until meat is cooked through.

Step 5: While the meatballs are cooking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan.

Step 6: Bring to a boil over medium heat while mixing sauce continuously, then reduce heat to low and let sauce simmer for 3-5 minutes (or until it has thickened up).

Step 7: Remove meatballs from oven and pour sauce over the top. If desired, sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

We like to serve our meatballs with cooked quinoa, cooked rice, mashed potatoes, or vegetables.

could i make these with ground beef?

You most definitely could make this recipe with ground beef.

The recipe wouldn’t have to change one bit. I would check the meatballs when cooking, just to make sure they don’t overcook.

With my experience with beef, it tends to cook a little faster because of the fat, so be sure to check on them, and maybe cut into one when cooking.
