A recent trip to the grocery store turned out to be both a blessing and a curse. Whole chicken was yet again on sale for rock bottom prices, so I dragged James out as additional muscle to find the largest ones we could and had him haul it back home. I was excited about the idea of cutting up the chicken and putting my meat grinder to work, but the cutting was bitterly long work. Yet born from this was a bounty of ground meat for a fun and quick meatball recipe. Cooking these cranberry glazed meatballs took much less time than expected. The meatballs turned out moist and flavorful - and the cranberry sauce gave it a Thanksgiving feel in the middle of this chilly March. You could also use ground turkey for more a "Thanksgiving-like" experience. :) While I might not recommend hacking up a whole chicken for fresh ground meat if you don't have the time, I would recommend this recipe. Give it a try and enjoy!
