  • In a large skillet, mix together cranberry sauce, BBQ sauce and brown sugar. Cook on medium low until ingredients are mixed and heated through.

Try not to over mix the turkey meatball mixture to prevent the meatballs from getting tough. You can also use ground chicken or ground beef for this recipe.
