Thanksgiving / Christmas dinner for two! Delicious cranberry turkey meatballs are the perfect alternative for a simplified dinner that has all the flavors of thanksgiving and ready in under 45 minutes. Served over creamy sweet potato mash with a serving of Parmesan roasted Brussels sprouts & smothered in gravy.
This recipe is such a great alternative to the traditional roasted turkey dinner, its perfect for two and can easily be adjusted to feed a small family or Friendsgiving dinner.
All the flavours of a turkey dinner packed into delicious meatballs. Chopped cranberries, celery, sage, thyme, rosemary and garlic. We served these with creamy sweet potato mash seasoned with a hint of cinnamon which ties so well with the sweetness of the sweet potato and the herb gravy. We also made crispy Parmesan Brussels sprouts for a wholesome meal.
For the pan gravy, we simply made the roux directly in the same pan we used to cook the meatballs and used the turkey drippings. Add some beef broth and herbs like fresh sage and fresh thyme for a dark & rich creamy gravy.
This dish smells so good we couldn’t wait to dig in. It’s the perfect quick & easy thanksgiving dinner recipe without all the hassle from cooking a turkey.
