Delicious Turkey Meatballs and Soup and a Giveaway.

A few weeks ago i went to a lunch held by Steggles and they had a full buffet of Turkey dishes. Now i tend to avoid Turkey, never really been a big fan, i put it down to too many dried out Christmas dinners but when in Rome or in this case Turkey .....   I was honestly surprised.  I do get a a little tired of the same day to day meats and i do like to experiment in the kitchen so when i was asked if i would like to re create some of the dishes that inspired me at the lunch i said yes and i'm so glad i did.

The dish i liked the most from the lunch was the Turkey Fresh Spring Rolls which i have already recreated and you can see that here 

The next recipe that inspired  me was this Asian Style Meatball Soup. This is one recipe i'm sharing today. It came on a  recipe card in a cute little cooler bag. The lovely people at Steggles have kindly offered me two of these cooler bags to giveaway. 

 Now i did change a couple of things to the recipe.  I added 1 Tablespoon of white Chia seeds to the meatballs before cooking them. I used vermicelli instead of udon and when serving the soup i added sliced shitake mushrooms, fine julienne carrot, coriander leaves and garnished with deep fried onions.

Hubby and i loved the soup and the kids at the Meatballs with rice and vegies.

Yum! That looks pretty dang good.
I'd definitely like to try making the Steggles recipe for turkey spaghetti bolognaise.
My hubby is super fussy with his spag bol so it would be kinda fun to totally trick him and not tell him it was turkey.. haha!

I want to try Turkey & sweet leek pie with a gorgeous chestnut and sage puff pastry topping. I saw it on a chef's webpage. I love his recipes, and this looks perfect for our family dinner party

I make an awesome sausage roll, but have never tried it with turkey mince before. Turkey is usually reserved for christmas around here. Would love to try out turkey sausage rolls at one of my mums group get togethers, I'm sure they would love them.

Rosemary and basil turkey patties because they are not only delicious but they can also be eaten numerous ways, ie. burgers, with mash and veg, stacked with grilled veg, etc.

Being a Bird myself makes me a bit of a cannibal, because I LOVE poultry. I am partial roast turkey and cranberry sauce but I'm really curious what turkey dumplings would be like and I know that the soft turkey tacos would go down well in our house.
