This is a unique twist to a comfort food that takes meatballs from savory to slightly sweet. It’s a great choice for those needing low-fat protein choices during the holiday.

Directions

1.Preheat the oven to 450°.

2.Coat a 9x13 inch baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.

3.In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey/turkey sausage, cranberries, eggs, onion, sage, and salt. Add half of the stuffing cubes in whole form, and crush the other half in your hands to resemble bread crumbs. Mix everything together with your hands until it is all incorporated.

4.Coat your hands with a little bit of olive oil and roll the mixture firmly into balls about the size of golf balls. Place the meatballs in the baking dish directly next to each other in rows. This will help them keep their shape while baking.

5.Roast for about 20 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through and slightly brown on top.

6.Serve meatballs with gravy and cranberry sauce, and enjoy!
