Why would I post a boring roast turkey recipe when I can post a fun & unique turkey recipe? Of course, everyone is going to be having turkey and of course, roast turkey is already paleo!
I figured, why waste my time on a recipe that’s so widely known. I’m sure everyone has their own turkey-cooking method and just assumed there’s no swaying that decision.
Instead, I decided to make a fun little holiday snack, h’ordeurve, or appetizer for your family & guests to enjoy.
It’s basically the classic holiday flavors in a bite-sized meatball. Turkey, cranberries and sage.
There’s not many flavor combinations I love more than this one and these meatballs hold the perfect balance between savory & sweet.
They’re quick, easy, and delicious. What more could you ask for?
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 1 tbsp ghee or olive oil
- ½ cup finely diced onion
- ⅓ cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup packed fresh parsley, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
- 2 tbsp packed fresh sage leaves, chopped
- 1 tsp sea salt
- ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- Place ghee/oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Once oil is hot, saute onion for 2 mins until softened. Toss in garlic & sage and immediately remove from heat.
- Gently mix onion mixture with remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
- Roll into uniform sized meatballs, drizzle with a bit of olive oil, and bake at 400 for 15 mins.
- Top with more freshly chopped parsley before serving.
