Turkey cranberry meatballs taste just like Thanksgiving in a meatball.



GRAVY – optional

1 tablespoon flour

3/4 cup organic chicken broth


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375
  2. Prepare the ingredients: mince the onions (1/2 cup) and 1 clove garlic, chop the cranberries and sage
  3. Place the onion, garlic, sage, thyme and turkey breast into a bowl
  4. Mix the chopped cranberries with 1 tablespoon syrup and add it to the meat mixture
  5. Use a spoon or your hands to mix all of the ingredients together
  6. Form the meat into balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet or a cast iron skillet
  7. Bake the meatballs for 15 to 20 minutes – until the internal temperature reaches 165

Gravy Instructions

  1. Add 1 tablespoon of flour into a small saucepan and gradually whisk in the broth. 
  2. Place the pan over medium low heat and continue to whisk until the gravy thickens. You may have to adjust thickness with more or less flour. Pour it over the meatballs before serving.
  3. Gluten Free Gravy – heat the broth over medium heat. Once it’s heated through make a slurry of 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder to 2 teaspoons water.  Remove the broth from the heat and gradually add the slurry to the broth, you may not need to use the entire slurry. Pour the gravy over the meatballs and serve.
