Sticky & Sweet Turkey Meatballs
These meatballs are the perfect holiday appetizer. The sticky, sweet pomegranate molasses and garlic sauce is the most amazing flavor combination! This will be a crowd pleaser, I promise you.
The meatballs themselves can stand quite proudly on their own. Turkey and cranberries are a favourite holiday combination and it works so well in a meatball. I always try to add greens in my food and with kale still in season, I chopped some up and threw it in; my children were none the wiser.
You can serve the meatballs with the sauce on the side as a dip (pictured below)
or you can toss them in the sauce and serve ;
When I make meatballs for appetizers, I prefer to bake them in the oven. I find that I end up with a more consistent and appealing shape compared to browning them in a pan. I have added the sauce in 2 different ways: (1.) Once baked on a lined cookie sheet, I will either end the cooking time a bit early and toss them in an oven safe deep dish with the sauce and bake for about 10 minutes; or (2.) to get a more sticky glaze, I will just toss the fully cooked meatballs in the hot, fresh sauce and serve. You could also freeze the meatballs ahead of time and then add them and the sauce to your slow-cooker a few hours before serving.
