Fresh herbs combine with lean ground turkey for an easy meatball recipe with a range of applications. Since this recipe uses lean ground turkey, which traditionally contains about 7% fat, we add sweet potato and cranberries to the meat mixture to add flavor and moisture. When shaping the meatballs, be careful not to over work the mixture as you form the balls, which will make them dense and tough. You’ll also want to keep the size of the meatballs consistent to ensure even cooking. Serve these bite-size morsels as an appetizer or hors d’oeuvre, or combine with pasta or rice for a main course.
