  • 1 ¼ cups rolled oat
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1½ tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the turkey, egg, oats, whole oats, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha, fish sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and salt together in a large bowl using your hands; roll into 16 meatballs and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a thermometer inserted to the center of a meatball reads 165°F (75°C), 20 to 25 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

These meatballs are perfect on top of a bed of dressed greens or grains! To make these paleo, substitute almond flour for the oats.

Mine fell a little flat while baking them. The flavor was solid though, they just didn't quite look like meatballs. Next time I make them I'll add more oats to the recipe to fluff them up.

I've been on a meatball kick lately, and I really love the flavor of these. I added this to some leftover kimchi fried rice I had. Was very pleased with these and will definitely make again.
