Asian Turkey Appetizers

50 servings


  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki marinade
  • Cornstarch slurry, as needed
  • 50 strips turkey bacon, pre-cooked
  • 5 pounds cooked turkey breast, cut into 1 x 2 x 1-inch cubes
  • Sesame seed, toasted, for garnish


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Mix the sugar, soy sauce, ginger, fruit juices and teriyaki together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer. Stir in a cornstarch slurry until the sauce is a glaze consistency. (If the sauce becomes too thick, add additional pineapple juice.) Adjust the seasoning as needed.

Wrap the bacon strips around the cooked turkey cubes and secure each with a toothpick.

Place the wrapped turkey on a hotel pan and drizzle the sauce on the turkey, coating each piece.

Bake until cooked through. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
