Not all balls are created equal. There are balls. And, there are BALLS!! Of course, I went the ones that screamed enormous flavors. After all, I’ve been here before. It’s amazing how a few added ingredients can tweak a bland poultry dish into an amazing one.

The main ‘player’ (ingredient) that made my turkey dish super-special was a small input of jerk seasoning  from the jar. Thanks to the ethnic aisle in my neighborhood store, I was able to be transported to Jamaica. A pinch goes a long way. That small move took my balls to another level. In addition, sautéed diced veggies and other ingredients  consisting of:

  • onion
  • carrot
  • celery
  • garlic
  • egg
  • panko bread crumbs
  • scallion
  • thyme
  • parsley
  • salt/black pepper
  • soy sauce
  • olive oil
  • brown sugar

were added in order to make these balls succulent and mouth-watering. Instead of frying my balls, I baked them for approximately 20 minutes at 375-degree fahrenheit. Then, they were placed a sweet and sour sauce consisting of a pinch of jerk sauce.

My balls were extremely happy and receptive. They absorbed all the sticky, sour, spicy and sweet ingredients.
