Expert Tips

Using a mixture of dark and light ground turkey (aka not extra lean) will ensure a more tender and juicy turkey meatball. These can also be made with ground pork.

You can make the meatballs in advance, roll them, and freeze until ready to cook. Bake them from the frozen state for a few extra minutes, separately it from the broccoli.

Sambal oelek can be found near the Sriracha sauce and has a similar flavor, but is more garlicky and coarse in texture. It’s spicy and delicious!
