Thanksgiving Balls

Inexpensive, quick and easy crowd pleaser.


  • 1 pkg. instant potato mix
  • stuffing mix (stove top type)
  • 1 can whole cranberry sauce
  • Ad
  • 1 egg
  • hot water
  • bread crumbs


Combine one packet potato flakes and one bag stuffing mix in bowl with half a cup of hot water; stir. Add one beaten egg and mush together. Dump in can whole berry cranberries and mix by hand as if making meatballs, then make meatballs. Roll in bread crumbs, drop in frying pan and cook less then 2 minutes; turn and cook another 2 minutes until done.

They taste like the Thanksgiving sandwich you make that night, the one with the stuffing and cranberry sauce on it. I have served as appetizers and people eat them like potato chips. I have also have served over egg noodles with a turkey gravy over them. Above recipe makes 24 meatballs

That sounds good and easy. What flavor of stuffing mix do you use?

What type of pkg. poatoes do you buy? I only know of the instant pot. in boxes. This sounds yummy.

Thank You.

This sounds great! Only thing is, I don't eat fried food. Can these be sauteed? Or even (sigh!) microwaved? Thanks!
