Cranberry Glazed Turkey Meatballs

Thanksgiving in a meatball :)

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, minced
  • 1/3 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 can jellied cranberry
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cups cider vinegar
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a pan, heat the butter on medium heat, add onions and stir until soft, then add minced cranberries.
  3. Continue to cook until onions are caramelized.
  4. Add the onion and cranberry to a bowl, and add all meatball ingredients except the egg.
  5. Mix until nearly incorporated, then add egg (in order to avoid cooking the egg).
  6. Once ingredients are fully incorporated Bake for 30-35 minutes, until internal temperature is 185°.
  7. While baking combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan, and simmer.
  8. When meatballs are finished, add to the saucepan, and let simmer for at least an hour.
  • I frequently finish these off in the crockpot. So instead of in a saucepan, simply combine the sauce ingredients in the crockpot, add the meatballs, and leave them a while. I wouldn't recommend leaving them on high too long, and the amount of sugar in the glaze can easily begin to caramelize.
Yields about 2 dozen meatballs, depending on size.
