These Honey Sriracha Meatballs have been a favorite for many years, and for GOOD reason!  Flavorful turkey meatballs coated in the most delicious sweet and spicy sauce made with a combination of sriracha, soy sauce, ginger, honey and garlic.  So. dang. good.  Sriracha is such a staple in our home (I pour that stuff on everything!) and I love making sauces with it because sriracha adds such a great kick of heat without being TOO hot.  The honey and soy sauce in this recipe really balance out the heat perfectly, but if this sauce is too hot for you, I recommend just cutting the sriracha in half.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Ground turkey – I used ground turkey because that’s just what we prefer, but you could also use ground chicken, ground pork, or ground beef
  • Breadcrumbs – I used whole wheat panko breadcrumbs to help the meatballs keep their round shape, but feel free use gluten-free breadcrumbs or almond flour, if needed
  • Eggs – acts as a binder, along with the breadcrumbs, to hold all the ingredients together
  • Green onions – I like to mix these in with the meatballs for a boost of flavor and color, but I also sprinkle additional green onion on top when serving
  • Seasonings – a combination of garlic powder, salt and black pepper

For the Sauce:

  • Sriracha – the star of this recipe that adds a nice kick to this sauce!  If this has too much heat for you, feel free to cut the amount of sriracha in half
  • Soy sauce – I always use low-sodium soy sauce as I find that regular soy sauce can make dishes too salty. You could also swap the soy sauce with tamari or coconut aminos to make this gluten-free
  • Rice Vinegar – you can also use white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • Sesame oil – adds that delicious Asian flavor to this sauce!
  • Honey – not only does this add some sweetness to the sauce without using refined sugars, but it also makes a nice sticky sweet glaze!  You could also swap the honey with maple syrup if you don’t have honey on hand
  • Garlic – you can use fresh chopped garlic or minced garlic cloves from the jar
  • Ginger – fresh grated ginger is definitely best in this dish, but feel free to use 1 teaspoon ground ginger if that’s all you have

How to Make Honey Sriracha Meatballs

  1. Make the meatballs.  This you can easily do ahead of time!  In a large bowl, mix together ground turkey, breadcrumbs, eggs, green onions, garlic powder, salt and black pepper until well combined.  Shape mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls using a small cookie scoop or your hands and place them spaced apart on a baking sheet coated in nonstick cooking spray.  You should get about 40 meatballs.
  2. Bake!  Bake the meatballs in the oven at 375 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned and cooked through.
  3. Make the sauce. While the meatballs are baking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small pot over medium heat and bring to a boil, whisking continuously.  Once the sauce is boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes to let the sauce thicken.
  4. Serve and enjoy!  Remove any excess grease off the cooked meatballs and toss with the honey sriracha sauce.  Serve over brown rice and garnish with extra green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.  Enjoy!

Great for Meal Prep

Seriously you guys this recipe is super easy and great for meal prep!  I can’t begin to tell you how much I look forward to my lunch each day when I have these waiting for me.  This meatball recipe makes about 40 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs so they’re perfect for my hubby and I to each have about 3 lunches leftover, once we devoured some for dinner of course.  I’ve also been asked several times about where I purchased these Pyrex dishes (which I LOVE) for my meal prep bowls and you can find them HERE on Amazon!

I always like to make a big batch of brown rice to serve with these meatballs along with a side of vegetables as the rice really helps to cut the spice from the honey sriracha glaze.  Check out my post on how to make perfect brown rice right in your Instant Pot every single time!   You could also serve these meatballs over quinoa or even cauliflower rice if you’re watching your carbs.  Then just top everything with some green onions and sprinkle on a few sesame seeds and you’ve got a deliciously FILLING, healthy meal all ready to go!

Prepping and Storage

Make Ahead:  These meatballs can easily be prepped ahead of time and stored in the fridge tightly covered for 2 or 3 days before baking.  Then when you’re ready to bake, pop them in the oven and make the sauce on the stove as directed.  You can also easily prep the sauce ahead of time too!  Just reheat in a saucepan right before tossing with the meatballs.

To Store:  If you’re planning on storing these meatballs for later, let them cool completely then store then in a sealed, airtight container in your fridge for 3 to 4 days while the sauce itself will last up to 2 weeks.

To Freeze:  These meatballs are freezer-friendly too and will last for up to 3 to 4 months frozen.  I recommend freezing the sauce separately in a sealed, airtight container.  To reheat, simply thaw the meatballs out in the fridge and place them in a skillet on low heat, stirring often, until warmed through.  You could also reheat them in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes.
