I loved this! I am not a big fan of ground turkey, so when I found a recipe containing the stuffing and cranberry jelly it made the ground turkey okay in my mind (thanks giving in a meat ball!) P.S. my hubby LOVES them! I am going to try them with turkey gravy too!
Well, mine didn't turn out as well as everyone elses. The taste was good and the sauce was good, but my meatballs were way too soft-- downright mushy. I had bought the Stove Top in the newer single serving, cup size... so didn't have any extra to add to the mix. I added about 1/2 cup more of bread crumbs, but still ended up with mushy meatballs. If I would have cooked them any longer, they would have burned.
I really liked these. Easy and versatile. Didn't have cranberry sauce so I used #76003 sweet and sour sauce and they were perfect. To test seasoning, make a mini patty and saute till done to taste and adjust seasoning before making all the meatballs. Will be using this alot. Thanks. **Just a suggestion--when I make other types of meatballs I usually soak the bread crumbs in the milk/egg mixture. It makes for a softer meatball in the end. If it still seems too dry you could add a couple more dashes of milk until all the stuffing is sufficiently coated and softened. Once all incorporated with the turkey the mixture still may seem a bit wet but will firm up during cooking. Hope that helps:)
