  • 2 lbs. ground turkey
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil, for meatballs
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs, plain
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic, for meatballs
  • 2/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic, for sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil, for sauce
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. siracha sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl combine ground turkey, sesame oil, bread crumbs, ginger, eggs, and minced garlic. Mix well with your hands until all ingredients are combined.
  • Shape turkey mixture into 1 1/2" balls and place them on a prepared baking sheet. Cook for 20-23 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the middle.
  • While meatballs are cooking, combine hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, honey, minced garlic, sesame oil, ground ginger, soy sauce, and siracha sauce in a medium-large skillet.
  • Bring sauce to a boil over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken slightly.
  • Remove meatballs from the oven and place them in the Asian sauce. Coat meatballs well and serve over rice or noodles. Sprinkle sesame seeds and green onion on top for a garnish. Enjoy!
