Ingredients

  • 1 recipe Herbed Mustard Sauce (see recipe below)
  • 1 pound ground raw turkey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried sage, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 6 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 32 chives, blanched

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, sage, garlic powder, mace, pepper, salt, allspice, and cloves. Divide and shape mixture into 32 meatballs.
  2. Add the chicken broth to a large skillet and bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  3. Lightly brush 1 sheet of phyllo with some of the melted butter. Place another phyllo sheet on top; brush with some butter. (Cover remaining phyllo with a damp towel.)
  4. Cut phyllo stack into twelve 4-inch squares, discarding extra phyllo around edges. Place a meatball in the center of each square and bring the four corners together to form a package. Twist to seal; brush with butter. Repeat with the remaining phyllo, butter, and meatballs.
  5. Place packages on baking sheets. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 12 minutes or until phyllo is golden.
  6. Remove the baked meatball-phyllo packages from the oven and tie the tops with a blanched chive. Serve warm with Herbed Mustard Sauce. Makes 32.

Make Ahead Tip

  • You can make the Herbed Mustard Sauce and turkey meatballs ahead and chill in the refrigerator. Then, wrap cold meatballs with butter-brushed phyllo dough squares and bake as above.
