  • 1/2 cup gluten free bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 cup parsley minced
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free chicken stock divided
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 12 ounce bag fresh or frozen cranberries about 2 1/2 cups
  • 1 cup San‐J Orange Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Combine the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion flakes, parsley and ½ cup chicken stock in a      large mixing bowl and let sit for 5 minutes. 
  • Add the turkey and mix with hands until thoroughly combined. Shape into 2 inch balls (about 2 tablespoons each). 
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the meatballs until browned all over, about 6 minutes.
  • Place browned meatballs on a baking sheet and bake in oven until cooked through, about 10 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, add the cranberries to the skillet along with the remaining cup of chicken stock, San-J Orange Sauce and sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until the cranberries pop and the liquid is reduced by half, about 7 minutes. 
  • Add the meatballs to the gravy and serve warm.
