baked teriyaki meatballs

worlds worst food blogger, i know.  my apologies.

the weekly meal plan posts, were they helpful at all?  it's one of those things that makes me think about how serious i want to take this blogging thing.  i'm non-commital. partially uninterested in spending the time to spread the word and try to make this anything more than just a place for me to keep my favorite recipes together. 

i follow a lot of amazing blogs and the frequency with which these bloggers post is just astounding to me.  i'm appreciative and love reading what they write about but doubt i could ever be as interesting or entertaining.  i truly admire (and am grateful for) their commitment to their blogs. 

anyway. i'll just keep doing what i do until i do something different.  

back on topic. i made these meatballs weeks ago and i'm telling you, they were really yummy.

baked teriyaki meatbals

1 1/4 lb ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cup chopped italian parsley
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce (i used light tamari)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tbsp all purpose flour
2 tsp grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced

preheat oven to 350 F.  line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.

add all of the ingredients for the meatballs into a large bowl and use your hands to combine until evenly distributed - try not to over mix.  using about 2 tbsp of the mixture, form the meatballs by rolling the mixture into a ball in your hands.  arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet.  bake for 15-20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.

to make the sauce: whisk together all of the sauce ingredients in a small pan and place over medium heat.  bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes.

once the meatballs are done, remove them from the oven and spoon generous amounts of the sauce mixture and then return to the oven for 5 minutes.  serve with the remaining sauce.

serve along side brown rice and steamed veggies.
