Chinese Meatballs

From Rita:

If you love Chinese food, you will enjoy these tasty little bites which are perfect to bring to a party where they can be served at room temperature.  I like these meatballs served warmed/or hot, with toothpicks, and a bowl of WARM soy sauce for dipping.  These meatballs are simple to make.   All chinese food lovers~ ENJOY!


  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 Tbls. minced fresh ginger ( or 1 -1 1/2tsp. dried)
  • 1/4 cup minced scallions
  • 1 tsp.sesame oil
  • 2 Tbls. regular bread crumbs
  • 1 egg yolk only
  • Cup of soy sauce, for dipping

Mix all ingredients together.  Combine to make small meatballs – about the size of a quarter.  In a large fry pan, pour just enough canola oil to skim coat the bottom, or spray heavy fry pan with canola spray.  Heat over medium-high to cook meatballs.  Turn until brown on all sides.  After cooking, place on paper towels to absorb oil.  Serve with the warm soy sauce for dipping.  Also consider serving them with duck sauce and or hot mustard or blend the two for a little sweet and hot  taste.
