Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cooled quinoa, ground turkey, egg, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.
  5. In three separate bowls, place the flour, beaten eggs, and panko breadcrumbs. Roll each ball in the flour, then the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the balls until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  7. Place the fried balls back on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  8. Serve with barbecue sauce for dipping.

Tip

For the crispiest exterior, make sure to thoroughly coat each ball in the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs before frying.
