Turkey, Cranberry and Basil Meatballs

Makes 4-6 Servings


¼ cup Paradise Meadow Whole Cooking & Baking Cranberries

1 ¼ pound ground turkey (93% fat free)

½ cup Greek yogurt

½ cup plain dry breadcrumbs

1/3 cup finely chopped fresh basil

1 large egg

½ tsp kosher salt

½ tsp fresh black pepper


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine turkey, yogurt, breadcrumbs, basil, egg, salt and pepper. Add the cranberries to the turkey mixture. With your hands, mix just until the ingredients are combined; do not overmix. Using an ice cream scoop, form the meatballs and place on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You should get 17-18 large meatballs.

Bake for 18 minutes. Serve hot, at room temperature, or cold. A salad of greens dressed with balsamic vinegar makes a perfect base for the meatballs.
