The holiday season is full of sweet parties and gatherings with all your beautiful friends and ugly friends...and weird relatives. We thought we'd share a fantastic appetizer that is simple to make ahead with a twist of gourmet. We use ground turkey in these meatballs as well as our 7 grain flakes to add texture and nutrition. They are baked, which makes them fast to prepare. They can also be made up to a week ahead of your party and kept in the fridge or freezer, so they are the perfect grab for unexpected holiday guests as well.
