meat mixture
2 lb lean ground beef or ground turkey
1 c. crushed cornflakes or grapenuts
3 eggs
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/3 c. tomato ketchup
2 tbsp. minced onion

1 can jellied cranberry sauce
1 12 oz. bottle chili sauce
3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all meat mixture ingredients. Form into 2 inch balls and place into a 9" x 13" baking dish. Place into oven.

While meatballs are baking, add all sauce ingredients to a sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occaissionally until smooth. Remove meatballs from oven, pour sauce over the meatballs. Place meatballs back into oven for the remaining cooktime. Meatballs should cook for a combined amount of 30 minutes. (larger meatballs may require additional cook time and smaller meatballs require less time)
