Polynesian Meatballs

posted by 11 months ago


1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple, divided

1 package (20 oz.) ground turkey or chicken

2 cups Minute® Brown Rice

3/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced and divided

1/2 cup gluten free teriyaki sauce, divided

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

2 Tbs. orange marmalade


Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare rice according to package directions. Drain 1/2 cup crushed pineapple for meatballs. Reserve remaining pineapple and juice for sauce. Combine ground turkey or chicken, cooked rice, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup green onions, 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, egg, ginger and nutmeg in large bowl. Mix well. Scoop mixture and gently roll into desired meatball size (we suggest about the size of a golf ball); place meatballs on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet with sides. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are done. While meatballs are baking, to make sauce, combine remaining pineapple and juice, remaining 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce and orange marmalade in medium saucepan; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup green onions. Top cooked meatballs with sauce. If desired, serve meatballs over additional hot cooked rice and sprinkle with additional green onions. (Yield: 6-8 Servings)
