Sesame-Spiced Turkey Meatballs

Adapted from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman

1 lb ground turkey

2/3 cup bread crumbs (I used Panko)

1/4 cup water

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

pinch of cayenne

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (way too lazy to toast mine)

1 egg

olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and with wet hands form golf-ball sized TurkeyBalls. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Brown balls in batches to avoid crowing in the pan. Place balls back in frying pan and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
