Ingredients
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 pound ground dark turkey meat
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
  • Salt and pepper
For the Mango Balsamic Glaze
  • 1 large mango, peeled and cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment or greased foil.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for the meatballs. Roll meat mixture into 1-inch meatballs and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and cooked through. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. 

 
While the meatballs are cooking, in a food processor, pulse together the mango, garlic, balsamic, water and honey. Pour mixture into a medium saucepot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to looks slightly thick. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Place a toothpick into each meatball and dip into Mango Glaze. Add a cube of mango to the end of the toothpick. Serve warm and enjoy!
