Recipe Yield: 24 - 4 mini meatballs
Honey Dijon Turkey Meatballs
Ingredients
Amount Item
1/4  cup Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend
6  pounds turkey, all white meat, ground
96  each Swiss cheese chunks (¼” cheese cube)
1 1/2  cups honey-Dijon, prepared
6  cups Panko breadcrumbs
6  Tbsp Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Seasoning Blend
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ¼ cup Mrs. Dash and ground turkey.

  2. Form into 96 small meatballs, using a #30 disher.

  3. Make indentation in the center of each meatball and place one small chunk of cheese inside. Smooth back into a ball encasing the cheese inside the meatball. Place on a sheet pan.

  4. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes.

  5. While meatball are baking, combine breadcrumbs and 6 Tbsp Mrs. Dash. Toast (in a non-stick sauté pan over low heat or on a sheet pan in the oven) to a light golden brown color.

  6. Dip each meatball in honey-Dijon to lightly coat. Roll in toasted panko/Mrs. Dash mixture to light coat. Serve hot.

  7. HINT: Very lightly apply honey-Dijon to the meatballs. Just enough to flavor and so breadcrumbs can adhere. You do not want a running, gooey, over sauced meatball. Can be served as an appetizer, a catering item, a buffet item or a center of the plate meal paired with brown rice and steamed vegetables or served over angel hair pasta with a new take on spaghetti & meatballs. Mix Italian sausage into the turkey for greater depth of flavor. Use buffalo mozzarella (which is also low sodium) versus Swiss cheese. Cooked meatballs could be browned in a sauté pan (before lightly breading) to create additional flavor, color and texture. Honey-Dijon could be used as a dipping sauce for the turkey meatballs.
