What will I need to make these WW meatballs at home?
If you want to make this recipe at home you will need some simple ingredients. Nothing on the list for these homemade meatballs is difficult to find normally so you should be able to pick these items up at your local grocery store.
The meatballs consist of fat free ground turkey, panko breadcrumbs, soy sauce, onions, garlic, eggs, hot pepper paste, honey, rice vinegar, scallions, and sesame seeds. I’ve linked to the gochujang sauce so you can order that if it’s not readily available in your stores!
Are these gluten free meatballs?
This recipe is not gluten free. If you have gluten free breadcrumbs that you want to try and your sauces are gluten free you should be all set. BUT I can’t say how they’ll hold up. You may need to add a bit more gluten free breadcrumbs in order to keep the mixture together as they sometimes get squishy with the GF alternatives.
How to make glazed meatballs for Weight Watchers:
You can check out the step by step instructions below in the recipe card for more information but this is how I make my glazed meatballs. These healthy meatballs really are easy to make. You can freeze them before or after cooking, either way they’ll be delicious, it just depends on how much work you want to put in now versus later!
After the oven is preheated to 400 degrees and the baking sheet is lined with parchment paper you will need to get a large bowl and start mixing!
Mix together the turkey, panko, onion, garlic, soy sauce and egg to make the meatball mixture. Form the balls into about 2 tablespoons per meatball, you should end up with about 24 meatballs to reach the included WW points and nutritional information breakdown.
Now we can put the meatballs onto the prepped baking sheet and put them into the oven, they’ll need to bake for about 15 minutes. While they’re baking you want to combine the gochujang sauce, honey, and the vinegar. Cook over medium heat until warmed and well combined and then the meatballs can go into the mixture. Coat them evenly and then sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions before serving!
