Directions

  1. This recipe can be increased easily or you may use store bought meatballs to cut down on time.

  3. You may just as easily pan fry the meatballs and skip the baking process!
  4. Mix bread crumbs and slightly beaten egg to moisten.
  5. Add seasoning mix to the turkey burger (you may use 1/2 the package of seasoning or just increase the meat by a pound or two if you want to use the entire package -otherwise meatballs are VERY spicy).
  6. Note:if you increase the meat-increase the binding agents-egg and bread crumb.
  7. Mix turkey burger, seasoning, egg/bread crumb mixture by hand-forming 1 inch meatballs (larger if you prefer bigger meatballs).
  8. Place meatballs on a baking sheet (you may cover baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easier clean up) spacing meatballs -not touching.
  9. Bake for 1/2 hour (check for doneness-some ovens may take less time,some more).
  10. At this point if you want to cool and freeze for future dinners you can-Make extra to cut down on time for next meal or use meatballs in soup, spaghetti, etc. --.
  11. Cook noodles according.
  12. If adding peppers either slightly cook to desired texture or steam with a bit of water if using frozen peppers.
  13. Add meatballs and sweet and sour sauce-heat thoroughly. You may also add canned pineapple if you like.
  14. Serve over cooked egg noodles.
  15. NOTE: You may substitute teriyaki seasoning (dry mix-same maker-Grill Mates by McCormick) for the Caribbean if you'd like a less "spicy" meatball,but yet just as flavorful-You may use entire pack to 1 lb ground turkey.
