These meatballs are great served as an appetizer or as a main dish with some rice. They would be great to serve on Thanksgiving because of the turkey and jellied cranberry sauce. If you wanted you could even buy the mini meatballs and just make the sauce if you are pressed for time or don't feel like making the meatballs. Feel free to substitute with your choice of ground meat to make the meatballs if you are not to fond of ground turkey.
