These easy Cranberry Meatballs are a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce and make the perfect appetizer for a holiday party.


  • 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/3 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Guacamole or extra cranberry sauce for dipping


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined.
  2. Form into small balls (about 1 Tbsp each) and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until they reach 165 degrees F, flipping once.


If you are making these after a holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas and have leftover corn muffins or cornbread, you could try crumbling some up to replace the breadcrumbs!
