Make Ahead Sunday: Turkey Meatballs with Sweet Peanut Sauce

Our kids love meatballs so I'm always looking for ways to change them up.  I think this one will be a hit.  I plan to serve it with veggie fried rice. 

  • 1 1/3 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated onion or shallot
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Chopped peanuts, for garnish
Preheat oven to 375. Mix chicken, cilantro, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper; roll into 1-tablespoon balls and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 30 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients (except peanuts) and warm in microwave. Toss meatballs with half of sauce and sprinkle with peanuts. Serve on toothpicks with remaining sauce for dipping.
