1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce


1 Egg

lightly beaten

1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
2 T Orange Marmalade
2 cup White Rice


Step 1 : Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2 : Meatball Preparation

Drain 1/2 cup crushed pineapple for meatballs. Reserve remaining pineapple and juice for sauce. Combine the ground turkey, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup green onions, 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, bread crumbs, egg, ginger, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Mix well. Scoop mixture and gently roll into desired meatball size. Place meatballs on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet with sides.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are done.

Step 4 : Sauce Preparation

While meatballs are baking, make sauce by combining remaining pineapple and juice, teriyaki sauce, and orange marmalade in a medium saucepan. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup green onions.

Step 5 : Serving

Top cooked meatballs with sauce. Serve over rice and additional green onions. Garnish with additional pineapple chunks, if desired.
