Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare the meatballs: Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add egg, breadcrumbs, turkey, cilantro, green onion, soy sauce, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and salt to a large bowl. Gently mix together with your hands until combined.

  • Roll tablespoon-size scoops between your palms to form meatballs and transfer to prepared baking sheet. You will have about 40. Bake until well browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • While meatballs bake, prepare the dipping sauce: Smash ginger with the heavy side of a knife and put in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar, soy sauce, and rice vinegar. Stir over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves and mixture is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Strain out ginger and transfer sauce to a bowl. Garnish with green onions, if using. Serve sauce with meatballs.

Make it Kid-Friendly

Give the younger set the option of dipping their meatballs in ketchup or barbecue sauce.
