SPICY TURKEY BALLS IN SWEET/SOUR SAUCE

So glad that I took the time to play with my balls (well, the seasoning of my ground turkey). Balls never tasted so good. I desired turkey balls that were firm on the exterior and super-moist and succulent on the interior.

And, I think I achieved same. You see, ground turkey is somewhat bland and normally requires the input of spices, flavors, and other ingredients in order to perk up and gain a mouth-watering dish. Raided my pantry and refrigerator and added the following finely chopped ingredients: a ‘holy trinity’ of sort.

  • celery
  • carrot
  • onion
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • scotch bonnet pepper

Along with:

  • salt/black peppers
  • eggs
  • ketchup
  • paprika
  • vinegar
  • Panko bread crumbs

Folded sauteed assorted veggies in turkey along with other ingredients. Balls were made and sprinkled with olive oil. These were baked in oven for 15 to 18 minutes at 375 degrees fahrenheit.

Balls were then simmered a sweet and sour sauce made up of :

  • vinegar
  • ketchup
  • sugar/honey
  • pinch of salt
  • corn starch

They absorbed all the mouth-watering flavors. BallsĀ  were then garnished with finely chopped parsley.
