A yummy way to make a quick and easy one-pan meal or fantastic appetizer. Serve over rice, soba noodles, or rice noodles, or place meatballs in a slow cooker or on a hot plate for appetizers.

Instructions Checklist

  • Combine maple syrup, ketchup, vinegar, sesame oil, olive oil, mustard, and sesame seeds in a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer sweet-and-sour sauce for about 5 minutes and set aside.

  • Combine green onions, egg, soy sauce, ginger, onion powder, black pepper, and garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Beat together until well mixed. Add ground turkey and top with panko bread crumbs. Mix well using your hands to combine all ingredients.

  • Use a standard cookie scoop to make uniform meatballs and place them in an even layer in an ungreased glass 9x13-inch pan. Place chopped carrots evenly between meatballs in the pan. Pour sweet-and-sour sauce evenly on top. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake and additional 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Instead of covering the baking pan with foil, you can place a sheet pan on top.

Use any chopped fresh veggies of your choice in place of carrots, if you prefer.

So tasty! I tripled the recipe, but used red bell peppers and broccoli crowns instead of carrots. There were 0 leftovers. Read More

I love these so much! I can't wait to make them again. The only thing I would change is to add some cornstarch to the sauce as it was pretty thin. But the flavor was SOOOOOOO good. Read More

This was SO good! I made it exactly as written (but added sugar snap peas after I removed the foil). Was the sauce thin? Yes, but once I mixed it into the rice in my bowl, it was just right. I did not need to add cornstarch. Crunchy carrots? Yes, a bit, but veggies aren't supposed to be soft. Served it with brown rice. Hubby loved it! (and he's picky) Read More

Best use of ground turkey yet! This dish was fabulous. Great taste with sweet and sour sauce plus hint of sesame The only issue was the carrots were crunchy. I think next time I’ll microwave prior to adding to the dish. Definite keeper Read More
