Teriyaki Turkey Burgers/Meatballs Recipe
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup baby rice cereal flakes like gerber (optional. see note)
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
Place ground turkey in a gallon ziplock bag and close with little to no air in bag. Squish bag to soften ground turkey. Open bag and Pour ingredients from small bowl into bag. Close bag and Squish to mix well.
Note: If the meat mixture seems too wet or sticky, open the bag and add rice cereal.. This also adds bulk to the meat and will help make more meatballs. The great thing about this recipe is that the proportions of the ingredients can be changed. Honestly, I never measure the ingredients and make adjustments based on the consistency of the meat mixture in order to make sure the meatballs or burgers aren’t too sticky to form. Each time I’ve made them, the finish product generally tastes the same.
Form patties and cook on grill or in a skillet on medium heat until cooked throughout.
Form small meatballs and place on broiler pan. Cook in the oven at 350 degrees. If you’d like to grill the meatballs, place meatballs on skewers to cook.
We usually make the meatballs and serve them with rice, rice noodles, or as finger foods with a dipping sauce. My kids like to dip their meatballs in a little bit of honey and my husband eats them with barbeque sauce. I think they are flavorful on their own and eat them plain. I’ve also served the burgers on buns, with a fresh slice of pineapple inside and let guests choose additional condiments if they choose.
