Cranberry Turkey Meatballs

This recipe is a little different from the usual grape jelly type of meatballs. Instead, this one is sauced up more like Cranberry Chicken. That dish is prepared with chicken pieces and a sauce of soup mix, cranberry sauce, and Catalina dressing. Except in this case I used tomato soup.
