Paleo Pineapple Thai Turkey Meatballs
Paleo Pineapple Thai Turkey Meatballs. The traditional meatball recipe has been given a quick, sweet & savory makeover! With only three ingredients this recipe is very easy, whole30 compliant, low carb, gluten free and absolutely delicious! Make a big batch on Sunday during meal prep for a week of yummy lunches or quick weeknight meals! They are even freezer friendly!
Even though summer is not officially over yet most of us are either back in school, back into a more regular work routine or if you are like me, craving all kinds of fall foods! When I was doing my Whole30 I made sure to always have a few staple recipes meal prepped each week! When you are busy with work, school, and other life activities being prepared is key!
- 3 lb ground turkey breast
- 1 large egg
- 3 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup onion, finely diced
- 3 tsp grated ginger
- ¾ cup Pineapple Thai Sauce *
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
- Combine all ingredients except the Pineapple Thai sauce in a bowl
- Roll meatballs into desired size and place in oven safe skillet
- Pour Pineapple Thai Sauce over meatballs
- Cook for ~ 20 minutes or until done*
*Time will vary depending on size of meatballs
Plus, who doesn’t love a good meatball recipe! I am definitely a meatball fan! I mean, we have vegan meatballs, meatball subs, and my all time favorite (and most popular) feta and turkey meatballs! Looking at this I definitely think I need to add a regular meatball recipe to the list! What do you think? Well, no better time for me to start working on that than now with the fall comfort food cravings in the air!
While we are talking comfort food can we also talk about how excited I am that we are back in sweet potato season! I mean, yes, we can enjoy sweet potatoes all year long, but they are never as sweet as they are in the fall/winter! And they pair so well with these meatballs! I made spiralized sweet potato ‘pasta’ for a simple pasta and meatball meal prep! It was so perfect! I just drizzle a little extra Pineapple Thai Saucy Lips over it and BOOM! A meatball recipe never tasted so good!
Happy dance for the easiest recipe ever!!!
