Healthy egg roll meatballs made with ground turkey, cabbage, carrots, onions and soy sauce! Serve them with a homemade honey sriracha sauce to make one easy weeknight meal!

Meatballs, meatballs and more meatballs… I swear after this quarantine is over I’m going to be meatball-d out! (Or maybe not…we’ll see! 😉 ) But there’s just so many things you can do with them and they’re so easy to make! Just like these egg roll meatballs I just recently made that have all the delicious flavors of an egg roll but with a healthier and low carb twist!

Delicious Asian inspired meatballs that take just minutes to make and are baked in the oven! They're healthy, low carb and can easily be made gluten free too!

Ingredients:

One of the reasons I absolutely love this recipe is because it’s chock full of veggies! But when everything’s cooked you can hardly taste them all. (This is such a great way to sneak some extra vegetables into your diet without anyone ever knowing!)

  • Ground turkey: provides lean protein that makes these meatballs slightly healthier
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage
  • Green & white onion
  • Egg: used to bind the meatballs together
  • Panko breadcrumbs: gives the meatballs their light and melt-in-your-mouth texture
  • Soy sauce (reduced sodium): for a little Asian flair (and it also adds some salt too!)
  • Water: helps to keep the meatballs moist
  • Pepper
These egg roll meatballs are sticky sweet with just a light bit of spice! They're packed full of veggies and take less than 30 minutes to bake in the oven too! Plus they make for a great crock pot meal!

How do I make these meatballs gluten free?

So easy! Use gluten free panko instead or simply remove the breadcrumbs altogether. Keep in mind though that if you do remove the breadcrumbs, your meatballs may be more dense than normal. (Breadcrumbs help to keep your meatballs juicy and tender!)

Do I have to you Panko breadcrumbs?

No you don’t have to. I personally prefer using panko breadcrumbs in all of my meatball recipes because I think they provide a better texture. Most regular breadcrumbs are gritty and can make your meatballs dense while panko is much more light and airy which makes your meatballs light and airy too!

A simple honey sriracha that is much healthier than anything you'll find in a grocery store! It's so easy and flavorful you'll want to put it on everything!

How to make Honey Sriracha Sauce

With any good meatball recipe, there HAS to be a good sauce recipe too! And this honey sriracha sauce is one of the best I’ve ever made! It’s rich and sweet and you can make it just about as spicy as you want! See my directions for it below:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce (reduced sodium)
  • 1-3 tsp sriracha (I used 1 tsp for mine, but feel free to add more if you like a spicer sauce)

Simply whisk these ingredients together and pour them over your meatballs! Or serve your meatballs plain with this as a dipping sauce on the side.

Easy oven baked egg roll meatballs are perfect for meal prepping or for a quick and easy weeknight meal! Plus there's even a recipe for my homemade sweet and spicy glaze too!

What do I serve with egg roll meatballs?

I love serving these meatballs as a meal because there’s so many things they go well with! I’ve listed a few of my favorite options for you below:

  • Steam/fried rice
  • Riced cauliflower
  • Roasted broccoli
  • Veggie stir fry
  • Roasted sweet potatoes (Sounds weird but trust me, it’s delicious)
  • Grilled pineapple
  • Topped over an Asian salad

And since these meatballs stay good for days, you can pair them with a few ingredients listed above for a super easy meal prep!

I hope you all are having a fantastic day and I can’t wait to hear what you think about these meatballs! STAY SAFE FRIENDS! 🙂

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • ½ cup green cabbage, chopped
  • ¼ cup green onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup white onion chopped
  • 1 egg

For the honey sriracha sauce:

  • 1-3 tsp sriracha (depending on how spicy you like your sauce)

Instructions

To make the honey sriracha sauce:

  • Whisk all ingredients together and set aside until ready to use. (Note: The more sriracha you add, the spicier it will be!)

To make the meatballs:

  • Combine all meatball ingredients together in a bowl and mix them until fully incorporated. Roll the mixture in to 1 inch balls and place them on your broiler pan/baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Once done, toss the meatballs in your honey sriracha sauce and serve or serve them with the sauce on the side.

Notes

-You can also serve these meatballs with your favorite sweet chili sauce too if you don’t like/want the honey sriracha sauce!

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google
    (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    • Hi Justin, thank you so much for your sweet words! I use Foodie Pro (the free version) and just tweaked it to fit what I needed.
      I also just checked out your website too and loved it! You’re already doing such a great job!
      Hope you’re staying safe too! 🙂

  2. Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that
    would be okay. I’m undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

  3. My brother recommended I might like this blog. He was totally right.
    This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine just how much time I had
    spent for this information! Thanks!
