Stuffing Balls (a.k.a. Thanksgiving in a bite)

My magazine collection was taking over my bedroom, and I decided it was time to go through all my cooking articles and rip out the 2 or 3 pages I thought I would really use. I stumbled upon this recipe for Stuffing Balls in the Food & Family Holiday 2005 issue laying next to my bed. (Now you know how long they had been sitting there!)

1 lb ground pork
1 package (6 oz Stove Top Stuffing Mix for Chicken
3/4 cup cranberry sauce
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 325. Brown meat; drain. Combine with dry stuffing mix in a large bowl.

Stir in cranberry sauce, egg and 1 cup water. Shape mixture into 16 balls. Place balls on foil-covered baking sheet; brush balls with melted butter.

Bake 20 minutes.

Makes 8 servings. 2 balls each.

My girls loved these. My oldest, Logan, said that it tasted like Thanksgiving in a bite.
This will definitely go into my "Fast Fix" meal rotation - now that sports are in full swing!

These sound great. They remind me of an appetizer recipe I have for Spinach Balls... which is spinach mixed with stuffing.
