Cooking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil.

  3. Roll mixture into 1” sized balls, and arrange on two baking sheets. Roast in the top and bottom thirds oven for 25-30 minutes, switching sheets halfway through, until meatballs reach an internal temperature of 165F.
  4. If serving immediately, carefully toss warm meatballs with remaining cranberry sauce and serve.
