Festive Turkey Meatballs w/ Cranberry Glaze – Low Carb/Gluten Free
So I made these low carb meatballs earlier this month, knowing that I would post them this week since people are all about turkey turkey turkey right now. I’ll be honest though, sometimes when I write a post weeks after I actually create a recipe it’s hard to get back the same enthusiasm I felt when I first sampled them.
That’s one of the drawbacks of planning out and executing recipes in advance, but it’s become necessary in order for me to stay on top of posting on the blog regularly, while juggling my other responsibilities.
The reason I’m bringing it up, is because it was a total non-issue with this meatball recipe – I can still taste them in my mind and they were excellent! In fact I’m REALLY wishing I had some of these right now! Each one was a perfectly balanced morsel of scrumptiousness! (I don’t care if it’s not a word, I’m using it!)
Not just any ho-hum lump of ground turkey, these beauties are studded with chopped walnuts, minced ginger, and jewel-like cranberry pieces throughout!
The walnuts add an interesting texture, while the ginger and cranberries give a mouthwatering tartness. These meatballs are fantastic on their own, and we haven’t even started on this incredible cranberry glaze they are bathed in!!!
Sweet and tart, it adds a lovely punch to the meatballs themselves, while the vibrant color makes these all the more festive and inviting.
Delicious hot or cold, these low carb meatballs can be made ahead and served as a fun and festive appetizer at any party.
To make this meatball recipe Paleo friendly, simply replace the sugar substitute with honey or maple syrup.
