  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Shape mixture into twenty-four 1 1/2-inch balls and arrange on prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake until cooked through and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm or at room temperature, with cranberry sauce for dipping, if desired.
