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:
- panko bread crumbs
- 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.
