Thanksgiving meatballs combine all of the best flavors of Thanksgiving dinner into one delicious bite. And the best part is you don’t need any leftovers in order to make them, so you can enjoy them all year long!
Every November I see people get excited about what they’re going to do with their Thanksgiving leftovers, and I can’t help but be a little jealous. One of the downsides of not hosting Thanksgiving dinner myself is that once the meal is done, it’s done. I don’t get any leftover turkey or cranberries or green beans to play with (let’s be real, there’s never any leftover stuffing – that’s just as much of a fantasy as unicorns.)
That’s where these meatballs come in. They taste like little bites of Thanksgiving goodness, without the need for any leftovers. In fact, they taste so much like Thanksgiving dinner, that I’m calling them Thanksgiving meatballs. It just feels right.
So, what goes in them? Turkey, obviously. But also cranberries, bread, spinach, and all of the seasonings that you might find in your favorite stuffing. Since Thanksgiving dinner isn’t complete without gravy, there’s some of that, too – a rich, creamy version like you might find on Swedish meatballs.
It’s basically your entire Thanksgiving dinner, in meatball form and ready in under an hour. Now that’s something to be Thankful for!
