  • 1/4

  • 2

    lbs ground turkey

  • 1

    egg

  • 1

Directions

While my oven preheated to 400 degrees (F), I melted my butter in a large skillet over medium/high heat. I added the onions and cooked them for a couple minutes until soft. Then I added the bread cubes, herbs, salt and pepper, and stirred gently for a few more minutes while everything got festive together, then removed the skillet from the heat. I used the heels of a sandwich bread loaf for this simple stuffing mixture, fresh from the bag, and I cubed them a little smaller than I normally would for a turkey stuffing. To a large mixing bowl, I added my turkey, egg, and stuffing mixture and used my hands to bring it all together. One at a time I formed the meatballs, pressing my thumb into the centre to make room for a fresh cranberry. With the cranberry tucked inside, I closed the opening and placed the meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet, ending up with about 30 meatballs. The meatballs went in the preheated oven for 25 minutes to get all golden and lovely while I prepared my cranberry sauce. Here's how I made it: the rest of the bag of cranberries 2/3 cup granulated white sugar zest and juice of 1 lime 1/2 cup water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium/high heat. The heat was lowered to a simmer while the sauce thickened for another 5 to 6 minutes. That's it! Sweet and sour and lovely.
