"I hate to cook, so I'm always looking for fast and easy recipes like this one," writes Hazel Bates of Clinton, Oklahoma. A sweet sauce coats these firm meatballs that are made with ground turkey for a nice change of pace.
Among my memories of a reunion held on my farm are these savory meatballs a family member made. That's where I got this recipe that I now make for potlucks and get-togethers. It's so handy to transport and keep warm in a slow cooker, and it makes a great appetizer, too.
Although this recipe is perfect for the holiday season, plan to use it all year-round—cranberries add "zing" to menus anytime. And, if you're looking for an appetizer idea, shape the meatballs smaller and serve with party picks.
Yuletide buffet "grazers" stampede for these meatballs! The mouthwatering morsels go so fast, I often make several batches at once. Barbecue sauce adds a nice bite to the mildly seasoned ground pork.—Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota
"I changed one of my recipes to come up with this healthier version," explains Jane Thoma of Monroe, Michigan. "Whether offered as appetizers, packed cold for picnics or served over spaghetti at dinner, these moist marjoram-seasoned meatballs are well-received."
It’s hard to believe meatballs this juicy, flavorful and tender could be low in fat and calories—and sized just right for two. Thanks to our Test Kitchen for a zesty meal mainstay that can double as an appetizer.
