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!
