Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, breadcrumbs, cannabis olive oil, egg, sage, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Roll the mixture into 1 1/2 to 2-inch balls. Arrange the meatballs on top of the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 12-14 minutes, just until cooked through.

Combine cranberry sauce, marmalade, and chicken broth over medium heat in a skillet large enough to fit the meatballs. Return meatballs to skillet. After about 3-5 minutes, reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to coat the meatballs in the sauce until the meatballs are no longer pink in the center and glaze is reduced. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving platter, then spoon the sauce over gently to coat.  Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.

*Low-tolerance consumers may want to adjust the recipe and do half regular oil/half infused oil if they’re worried about potency, especially if pairing with other cannabis-infused dishes. Please enjoy responsibly!
