Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I grew up with this recipe and it has become one of my kids favorites after a few tweaks.  Fast, easy and tasty best describes this family classic.  If possible try to find cranberry sauce with out corn syrup.  I like to use kosher ground white turkey for two simple reasons.  First, kosher meat is brined and brined meat taste better and second the white meat does not have that turkey tang which I can not stand.

Sweet and Sour Turkey Meatballs
from Me

1 can jelled cranberry sauce
1 bottle of chili sauce (found in the ketchup aisle of grocery store)
2 lbs kosher white ground turkey
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1 1/2t granulated garlic
1 1/2T chopped dehydrated onions

~ put cranberry sauce and chili sauce in stainless  medium to large steel sauce pan
~ heat low/medium
~ mix turkey, bread crumbs, egg, garlic and onions gently
~ gently form meatballs ( do not squish to form)
~ add meatball to pan
~ cook until done about 30 minutes

Another family tradition is the accompaniment of rice and organic peas.
This dish is just as great using ground beef.
