If you hang out with H and I, you’ll know how much H loves his hot sauce. He has his own bottle of Sriracha. I wish I was kidding but I am not LOL. He puts it on everything – ranging from his rice to his pizza. We have approximately 3 bottles of Sriracha and 2 jars of hot sauce in our household. So when I was craving something spicy, it wasn’t a shock that I reached for Sriracha.

While at my neighbour’s house baking cakes, I saw her roommate making meatballs and it sparked my curiosity. I’ve never made my own meatballs before! I watched as she chopped onions and shaped her minced beef into little balls. Asking her questions about what she put in it, how she froze the extra, etc, I was armed with some inspiration and went off to the market to buy some meat to give it a go!

While I have a soft spot for Ikea meatballs, I wanted something spicy so I grabbed H’s Sriracha and started playing with the sauce. I wanted something with a kick but I hate things that are just blindly spicy so I played with adding honey to the mixture so it was a bit sweet but still spicy. (By the way, if you’re marinating meat in general, try using some Sriracha, you can thank me later.)

For Honey Sriracha Turkey and Mushroom Meatballs, I baked them so you’ll need a sheet pan (and maybe a meatball scooper) to make this recipe! I served this with a side of rice for my meal prep but you can always serve this as an appetizer or as part of a main meal!

I had a portobello mushroom hanging out in my fridge so I chopped it up and mixed it into the meatballs – this is the blend and extend method that adds volume to the meat and extend portions so I was able to make slightly bigger meatballs and still have 40!

(Also, I used panko bread crumbs because I had a ton left over from my Lightened Up Baked Popcorn Shrimp recipe, you can use regular bread crumbs if you don’t have any panko)
