Sriracha Turkey Meatballs


My name is Nichole and I am addicted to Sriracha. Have I started off a post this way before? It sounds vaguely familiar to me but that may just be because I've made quite a few Sriracha recipes lately and Tom has actually asked me to cut back.

Harumph. Cut back on sriracha!? But it's delicious! And it's entirely not my fault he's sick of it. See, there is this guy we refer to as the 'Hot Dog Guy' who parks his truck and hot dog cart within walking distance of our office. On Tuesday's Hot Dog Guy has Polish Sausages and an option is to purchase them with Sriracha. He did this for two weeks in a row and then one weekend picked up Italian sausages at the grocery store so he could eat them at home. It just so happened all of this happened in a 2-3 week span of me making 2-3 recipes with Sriracha.

    • 1 lb. ground turkey (Jennie-O)
    • 2 bunches green onions, diced 
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
    • 3 tbs. Sriracha
    • 2 tbs. sesame seeds, toasted
    • 1 tbs. fresh ginger, grated
    • 1 tbs. garlic, minced
    • 1 tsp. salt

1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, half of the green onions, egg, bread crumbs, Sriracha, half of the sesame seeds, fresh ginger, garlic and salt together. Form into 25-30 meatballs and place on the baking sheet.
3. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned then turn over the meatballs and return to the oven for another 10 minutes or until golden on all sides and cooked through.
4. Serve garnished with remaining green onions and sesame seeds.

I served these over rice with stir fry veggies. I really, really enjoyed the meatballs and I didn't think the Sriracha taste came through too strongly. Tom was really hesitant at first and even said "Oh, Sriracha again!?" when he saw the recipe but said that he really enjoyed these because the Sriracha was cooked into the meatballs.

I thin these would also be delicious served as an appetizer with a Sriracha-mayo or a honey-soy-ginger dipping sauce.


  1. I've made these with a similar product, it's called "Nom Ploy" - I think it's "sweet chilli sauce"

    I must get some sriracha, just to compare!
    Lovely looking recipe!

    1. Thank you! I've never heard of Nom Ploy, I'll have to check and see if I can find it at the store.
