Cook Time


1 pound ground turkey
1/3 pound mild Italian bulk sausage
2/3 cup Italian seasoned croutons, crushed
1/4 cup pesto
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
2 ounces goat cheese, softened
2 tablespoons sour cream

Salt & pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, garnish

Preheat oven or grill to 400 degrees. Combine the turkey, sausage, croutons, pesto, egg and 1/2 teaspoon each: salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Grease a large baking sheet with 1 Tablespoon oil. Shape turkey mixture into uniform meatballs and lay side by side on baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, prepare Hail Mary Horseradish Dipping Sauce by placing Cranberry Sauce, goat cheese, sour cream and horseradish in a blender or food processor and pulse until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Sprinkle with parsley to garnish. Poke meatballs with lollipop sticks and place in a transportable container to take to the tailgate party along with the dipping sauce.
