Our Honey Sriracha Meatball recipe swaps out regular ground meat for lean ground turkey. If you’re unfamiliar with choosing meat on your Nutrisystem meal plan, check out the Nutrisystem Grocery Guide > This guide will give you the unwavering confidence you need to make smart and healthy choices the next time you come face-to-face with selecting meats.

It all starts off with creating the perfect meatball and while the turkey, egg and breadcrumbs recreate the tantalizing texture of a classic meatball, the honey sriracha is a sweet substitute for the mainstream marinara. Rolling out and crafting the meatballs is the most hands-on part of the recipe, which means it’s the perfect time to get the whole family involved! It can be a fun family activity that will make healthy eating even more exciting.

Whipping up the honey sriracha sauce is quick and easy. All you need to do is pour all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat to a boil while stirring occasionally. Once the meatballs are baked and the sauce is finished boiling, you can toss the two together. Chop some chives and grab your sesame seeds and just like that, your Honey Sriracha Meatballs are ready to go!

And when you’re on the go, it can be hard to keep track of all the meals and snacks you’ve eaten. Fortunately for you, our free food tracking app, NuMi, does all the hard work for you! Easily log each serving of these delicious Honey Sriracha Meatballs here >
