Turkey Pineapple Jalapeno Meatballs


This recipe has gone through an evolution! A while back, I made these turkey pineapple jalapeno burgers. As a part of the Secret Recipe Club, Megan made them into beef meatballs. I adjusted them again and made them into these turkey pineapple jalapeno meatballs:



  • 1/2 lb ground turkey 
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple 
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Caribbean Citrus seasoning



  1. Mix together all ingredients and form into balls.
  2. Place on foil covered baking sheet (or on top a cookie sheet, sprayed with non stick spray on a baking sheet).
  3. Bake at 400 degrees until cooked through

I served my meatballs on top of brown rice mixed with soy sauce, additional crushed pineapple and chopped & cooked jalapeno:



What are you up to this weekend? Tomorrow, we’re celebrating my FABULOUS Aunt Lori’s birthday. Other than that? I have yard work and a run planned.
