  • 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and finely chopped fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup teriyaki baste and glaze
  • 1 small red or green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks in juice
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions with tops

Directions

  1. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, gingerroot and salt; mix gently but thoroughly. Form mixture into 20 meatballs, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

  2. Heat oil in (12-in.) Skillet over medium heat until hot. Add meatballs and cook, turning frequently using Chef's Tongs, about 5-7 minutes or until meatballs are brown on all sides. Add teriyaki baste and glaze, bell pepper, pineapples and juice; stir gently to coat meatballs evenly. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 8-10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
