Sweet & Savory Meatballs to Wow Your Taste buds

by Adriana Clifton

Yields 4 Servings


Meatball Mixture

  • 1.5 lbs. ground turkey (or other ground meat)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. of minced garlic


  • 2-3 large garlic cloves grated (or 1 tbsp. of minced garlic)
  • 2 tbsp. honey (whipped honey also okay)
  • 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • Olive oil


  1. Combine seasonings, breadcrumbs, and 2 teaspoons of garlic with ground turkey in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly until completely combined. The texture should be similar to sticky play dough.
  2. In a semi-large pan, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Heat at medium temperature.
  3. While the pan is heating, scoop small scoops of mixture and shape into meatballs. Add meatballs to the hot pan. Sear on each side with tongs or a spoon for assistance. Monitor the oil level and add slightly more oil as it evaporates/incorporates to prevent burning.
  4. Once meatballs are thoroughly cooked, add 2 – 3 grated cloves of garlic (or 1 tablespoon of minced garlic), two tablespoons of honey, and 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce. Monitor and add another 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil if the mixture gets too dry. Stir constantly to fully combine sauce and turn down the heat to low halfway to maintain garlic flavor.
  5. Serve with vegetables or your favorite side.
