Hawaiian Meatballs

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lorac

Meatballs flavored with pineapple and fresh ginger in an orange Teriyaki sauce. I prefer to substitute ground pork for the chicken. For the meat loaf version check out the recipe for Glazed Hawaiian Meat Loaf. Recipe from "Sam Choy's Island Flavors".

We needed a new dinner so I tried these and served them over rice. Fantastic. I used just a little over a pound of ground turkey and cut the ingredients for the meatballs in half. I also tired just regular dried breadcrumbs and it worked out fine. I made the full recipe for the sauce since it always seems like there is never enough for our family. It served a family of 4. (would have served 5, we had leftovers). Thanks for the recipe.
