Festive Turkey Meatballs Recipe

Turkey gives a different twist to these slightly sweet and spicy meatballs. For the holidays, I serve them on a tray lined with parsley and garnished with red pepper or pimientos.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Add turkey; mix well. Form into 1-in. balls. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until juices run clear.
  • 3. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients in a small saucepan; cook and stir until heated through. Brush meatballs with 1/4 cup sauce; return to the oven for 10 minutes. Serve remaining sauce with meatballs for dipping. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
