Leftover Thanksgiving Meatballs

I found the recipe on The Kitchenista Diaries. Great way to use up that leftover holiday meal~


2 c. leftover stuffing or dressing
1 c. cooked turkey
1 small sweet potato, baked & mashed
1/2 cup mild shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg

1/2 c. warmed gravy


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large bowl, break up your stuffing into smaller pieces . Finely chop your turkey meat, and add that to the bowl along with the mashed sweet potato.

Beat egg in a small bowl and add to the above mixture.

Add shredded cheese and mix well.

 Incorporate ingredients- squeeze them through your fingers. 
Once you get the size meatball you desire, flatten out the meatball in the palm of your hand. 

Place on a baking sheet which is covered with aluminum foil meatballs and bake for 35-45 minutes.

The meatballs should be browned when they are done.

Remove from baking dish and serve with gravy.
