Usually make turkey meatloaf but looking for something a little different....one recipe I use is the common turkey, grated vegetables, ketchup and/or tomato sauce. Another is the ground turkey, with onions, Chinese rice noodles, lots of soy...very tasty for a change. Guess these would be fine as meatballs.

Do you have a unusual turkey meatball recipe? Not necessarily holiday related...

I'd do the same as I'd do for beef, but I like to add brown things like soy sauce for both color and flavor.

Oyster or hoisin sauces are other possibilities for yummy "asian" meat balls.

Yes I am weird about the grayish-brown color of turkey meatballs....I'll try the sauces for a change and to darken it up a little...

Ancho-leek meatballs. I have actually only made this as a meatloaf, but it is my favorite meatloaf. I found the recipe in the Washington Post about five years ago. Be sure you buy the dark-meat turkey.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed or canola oil
  • 2 leeks, white parts only, minced (1/2 cup)
  • 2 pounds ground dark-meat turkey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup fresh plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sauce from canned chipotles in adobo, or more as needed
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder, or more as needed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, or more as needed

DIRECTIONS:

Heat the oil in a small saute pan over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering. stir in the leeks; cook for about 3 minutes or until translucent. Let cool.

Transfer the cooled leeks to a large mixing bowl along with any pan juices, the ground turkey, eggs, bread crumbs, heavy cream, adobo sauce, ancho chili powder and the salt. Use a sturdy wooden spoon or silicone spatula to stir hard a few times, until the mixture makes a slapping sound against the side of the bowl; the sound indicates the mixture has been worked enough to hold together.

To test the seasoning, pinch off a small piece of the mixture and form a test patty. Fry the patty in a drop or two of canola oil in the same small saute pan over medium heat, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, then taste carefully for seasoning. Add more adobo, ancho chili powder and/or salt, then test again by cooking another patty, until you’ve got it just right.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Dampen your palms with water. Use a tablespoon or a soup spoon to scoop 50 to 60 meatballs, rolling them into balls in your dampened hands and placing them on the baking sheet as you work. Roast (middle rack) for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. At 12 minutes, test one meatball for doneness; do not overcook, or the meatballs may become tough.

I don't have a recipe, but I'm thinking Cajun turkey meatballs in sauce piquant. Saute chopped celery, green bell and onion (Trinity) until soft. Add some finely chopped garlic and cook until fragrant, remove from heat and let cool. When cool, mix in with ground turkey along with an egg, fresh bread crumbs (that have been moistened with milk) and some Cajun or Creole seasoning like Emeril's "Rustic Rub" or Tony Chaterie's "Creole Seasoning. Combine everything, cook a Tbsp in a pan to check seasoning and adjust as needed. I'd use a 1-1/2" scoop to measure out the meatballs. I'd bake them on a rack over a roasting pan at 350F. Serve over white rice with your favorite sauce piquant or Creole sauce.
