These Teriyaki Meatballs are sweet, salty, tangy, and so incredibly moist and addictive.  The garlic, ginger, scallion, red bell pepper, and soy sauce all infuse the meatballs with the most amazing flavor.  Combined with a simple Garlic & Ginger Soy Veggie Stir Fry and served over rice noodles, it’s a perfect family dinner.  Drizzle over or dip the meatballs in the tangy Teriyaki mustard sauce and they burst with even more flavor.

Getting Kids to Try New Flavors

It can be hard to get kids to try new flavors.  But sometimes using familiar foods to introduce new flavors works wonders.  Enter meatballs!  What kid doesn’t like a good meatball, right?  I encourage you to experiment with different flavors and sauces.  I have tried sweet & sour, apple, chipotle, and other flavors, but these Asian meatballs are a favorite because they are unexpected, fun, and just plain delicious!

Here are some other Meatball recipes you can try at home for dinner!

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

For this recipe, I used a mini food processor for the ingredients for the meatballs. 

For the stir fry, I used my absolute favorite 12″ Ceramic Pan, which is great because food really does slide right off with minimal oil and I don’t have to worry about food sticking and burning.  It comes with a glass lid, which is perfect for watching your dinner cook!.

Lastly, you will also need a large sheet pan (I use a 17×11) for baking the meatballs.

PREP-AHEAD FOR YOUR TERIYAKI MEATBALLS DINNER 

You are busy, so these are the steps you can do a day or two in advance to prepare food ahead!  (See the recipe below for more details)

In terms of Prepping ahead, you can make the meatballs and store them raw for a day or two in the fridge or freeze them raw up to 3 months ahead!  You can prep the veggies and make the Teriyaki Mustard Dipping Sauce 1-4 days in advance.  

Let’s start with the veggies.  You can really use whatever veggies you have in the fridge for this stir fry.   I used carrots and broccoli, but you can use celery, zucchini, cabbage, red or green pepper, onions, and more.  Cut the carrots into thin strips and the broccoli into small florets.

Let’s move on to the meatballs.  Peel the garlic. Coarsely chop garlic and scallions and ¼ of the red pepper.  Save some thinly sliced greens from the scallions for garnish if you like.

Peel the ginger. You can scrape the skin off with a spoon, use a peeler or simply cut off the skin. Chop the ginger (the blender will do the rest).
Into the food processor, put the garlic, scallion, red pepper, ginger, chili pepper flakes, and the soy sauce. Pulse for 30 sec, scrape down the bowl and process 1 minute more, or until finely ground.

I use a tablespoon to scoop out the right amount of meat and then roll in a meatball.  Roll meat into 24 balls each about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter. TIP: score the meat in half, then each in half again, then again to give you 8 equal portions of meat. Then roll 3 balls from each of the 8 portions to give you 24 same-size balls.

At this point, you can move on to cooking the meatballs or storing them in the fridge or freezer.  If you want to freeze them, lay them all out on a sheet pan to freeze and then transfer them to a freezer storage bag once frozen.

Make the rice noodles by bring a large pot of water up to a boil. Add the rice noodles to the boiling water and push them down to submerge. Stir the noodles as they soften and cook for 5 minutes until the desired texture. Drain and rinse under hot water. Place back in the pot until ready to serve.

Preheat the oven to 400 F degrees. Place the meatballs on an oiled sheet pan. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes (if frozen, cook for 30 min) until browned on the outside and no longer pink on the inside.

While the rice noodles and the meatballs are cooking, make the veggie stir fry.  Preheat a large skillet on high and add a tbsp of olive oil and the Carrots. Cook the carrots for about 5 minutes, then add the broccoli, garlic, and ginger.  Stir so that they do not burn and cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to soften.

Slow Cooker Egg Casserole in slow cooker. It has Chorizo, Potatoes and both cheddar and manchego cheeses. IT COOKS WHILE YOU SLEEP! #eggs #eggcasseroles #eggrecipes #breakfastideas #holidayrecipes

…As visions of a Slow Cooker Egg Casserole with Chorizo and Potatoes danced in their heads.  Yes, friends, welcome to the recipe that dreams are made of.  This is the breakfast that will cook while you sleep!  You happily wake up to the amazing aromas of chorizo sausage, cheese, potatoes, and eggs.  This is my Slow Cooker Egg Casserole.

This crockpot of love, is inspired by my Mom’s breakfast casseroles and the love my husband and I have for Chorizo (See my recent Chorizo Patatas Bravas recipe!).   It has salty and slightly spicy chorizo, hearty and savory hash browns, and creamy, nutty cheddar and manchego cheeses.  All of this goodness sets up in a fluffy egg mixture for the perfect crowd-pleasing, help-yourself breakfast.

The Best Part?  IT COOKS WHILE YOU SLEEP!!! 

I thought my love for my slow cooker was strong before.  But now that I know it can cook eggs while I sleep!?  Well, let’s just say I feel sorry for the person that tries to come between me and my slow cooker!  I mean, what could be better when your house is full of family and friends for the holidays, than to wake up to the smell of a cooked breakfast casserole?  This Slow Cooker Chorizo & Potato Egg Casserole is the stuff that dreams are made of – literally!

The Next Best Part?  Delicious High Quality Eggs!

If you’re gonna make a recipe that’s almost entirely eggs, then you have to use high quality eggs.  I love Pete & Gerry’s Organic Eggs.  They are always free from pesticides, added hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs.  And all Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs come from small family farms that are dedicated to humane animal treatment, safety, and environmental sustainability.  I can find them right at my local grocery store chains, too!  I don’t have to go searching high and low to find them.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

I made this recipe in a slow cooker. However, you could also make it in an oven-safe casserole dish in the oven.

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR SLOW COOKER EGG CASSEROLE

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

For this recipe, you can prep the Chorizo, Scallions, and Cheese in advance. 

Chorizo comes in a few different variations. You will find fully cooked sausage, raw sausage, and dry-cured. For this recipe, you will not want dry-cured. You can get either the fully cooked or raw sausage, both of which will likely have a casing that you will want to remove. I used a fully cooked chorizo.  If you get the raw chorizo, you will want to cook it in a skillet before adding it to the slow cooker.

Prep the chorizo by removing the outer casing.  Then rough chop the chorizo up into small pieces, somewhere between the size of a pea and a grape.   This size will evenly distribute throughout the entire casserole.  Store sealed in the fridge until ready to cook.

Slice the scallions. Shred the cheeses. 

COOK YOUR SLOW COOKER EGG CASSEROLE 

Let’s get cooking!  Again, for this recipe and any recipe where eggs are the hero, I use high quality eggs.  I love Pete and Gerry’s for this one.  Crack 12 eggs into a large bowl. Add most of the scallions, saving some of the greens for garnish. Add salt and pepper, then add 1 cup of milk and beat until mixed.

Set the Slow Cooker to 6 hours, low. Do this right before the last person turns into bed for the night, so that you wake up to this wonderful breakfast. After 6 hours, the slow cooker will go to warm mode so that it won’t overcook, but stay warm until you are ready to eat!

The easiest way to slice and serve is to remove the slow cooker pot and place a plate/platter over top. Then invert the pot so the casserole slides right out onto the plate. You can flip it over if you like so the ‘pretty’ side is up or just cut and serve.
