Easy Teriyaki Meatballs

Here's what we had for supper tonight.
Teriyaki Meatballs
Cauliflower 'Rice' (not pictured-it's just steamed cauliflower, chopped fine)
Cucumbers (of course)
Sliced tomatoes from the garden.

A few of you had asked what Glenco eats.

He eats what I eat at supper, but traditionally has a sandwich for lunch, and he still loves his potato chips.  He's eaten a banana for breakfast everyday for the last 28 years. I kid you not.
He's lost 18lbs since I've changed my way of eating, shopping and cooking.
He loves how he feels.

Here's the recipe for the meatballs. I used ground sirloin tonight - next time I'll try it with ground turkey breast. They were so flavorful!

1# ground sirloin, or ground turkey breast
1/3 cup of teriyaki sauce (I used Organicville Island Teriyaki Sauce-it's quite clean, found at regular grocery store)
1/2 cup of chopped green onions
1 T freshly chopped ginger root
2 teas. garlic powder
6 T oatmeal
1 egg white

Mix all the above together, and form into 8 meatballs. Place on baking sheet and bake for about 35 minutes at 350*. (I made mine ahead, and had them ready to go right in the oven - oh so convenient)
These are surely going in my recipe file. We all really enjoyed them!

Would love to see you there!


  1. They look yummy- I will have to try them-I have been fooling my family for several years using ground turkey breast in place of the ground beef-it's all about the seasoning...I just seen a cooking show that added chopped mushrooms to the meat for more flavor and I love mushrooms so i'm going to try that-keep them recipes coming! Thanks Jayme
    P.S. I would love to purchase some of your honey for my grandaughter who has allergies-

  2. Thank you for posting this!! And I "liked" you! And I still do, currently! :) I'm gonna make these this week! IF there is any added sugar in that teriyaki sauce, I have to wait for another couple weeks though. I still can't spell that word! ;)

  3. Looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thank you Jayme! Thanks for the answers, and thanks for the recipe-- using something that doesn't have anything in eat that I should avoid! Love it!

  5. Hooking up the squirrel??? Traveling??? Bringing a chicken??? when will you be here??? I'd bake a cake, but you wouldn't eat it! I have cucumbers and farm fresh eggs...will that do???? I'll be watching for you!!

  6. I love anything Teriyaki so I will have to give these a try! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    And the FB Like button seemed to work! Woot!

  7. No problem "liking" you on FB, I look forward to more of your recipes.

  8. Would love to meet you and Aaron. I live close! jan

  9. I like your new FB page. I can't wait to see what all you have to share. Your dinner looks great.

  10. Excellent.. thank you! I've also been using lots of grated zucchini for filler in ground meat patties (from my parents' garden ~ I can't grow zukes... so sad). This sounds super tasty!! I'm off to LIKE your new fb page :D -T

  11. Those look so yummy. I've been making these new turkey burgers. I don't know if they'd fit in your new diet. 2 lbs. ground turkey, 1/2-3/4 c. teriyaki sauce (I used less) and 1 packet onion soup mix. They are awesome! I've subbed 1 lb hamburger for the 2 lbs turkey and it was really good. Fresh ginger is one of those things that scared me cooking. Do you peel it first I'm assuming? How finely do you chop it?

  12. I love the recipe, thanks for sharing! Keep up the great weight loss work! I don't do FB, so tough luck for me :(

  13. Have you seen the blog Gracious Pantry? She does all things clean eating like you do. You might enjoy a peek!
