Recipe Ingredients:

8 ounces ground turkey
1/3 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup finely chopped green onion (green and white parts)
1 medium jalapeño chile pepper, finely chopped (with or without seeds)
2 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil - divided use

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons Bourbon or Canadian whiskey
2 teaspoons brown sugar substitute blend, packed

Cooking Directions:

  1. In medium bowl, combine turkey, oats, green onion, chili pepper, egg whites, pepper and 1 tablespoon of canola oil and shape into 24 small meatballs (about 1 tablespoon each).
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook meatballs 6 minutes or until no longer pink in center, turning frequently. (For better control, use two utensils, such as a fork and a spoon, to turn the meatballs easily.)
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together hoisin sauce, bourbon and sugar substitute.
  4. Pour hoisin mixture over meatballs in skillet and cook 15 seconds, stirring gently until well coated. Serve with wooden picks.

Makes 6 (4 meatball) servings.
