I used arrowroot to thicken the gravy when I had a friend with Celiac's(?) come for my Thanksgiving. I also made flourless chocolate cake (epicurious.com)for dessert.
Ok, you are going to not like me for this- another crockpot appetizer meatball recipe- wooo hoooo!
Ready-made meatballs in a bag from the store
Preheat oven to 350-400 degrees. Mix liquids in deep pan you are planning to make meatballs in. The cranberry sauce needs to be worked in a little. Add meatballs. Cover and bake 30-40 minutes. Enjoy over mashed potatoes, as appetizers, or my FAVORITE potatoes:
Line a pan with aluminum foil. If you are not lazy, spray a coat of Pam on it.
2-3 potatoes, cut into wedges- the more wedges, the more crusty exterior!
(You can add garlic and onion powder if you're feeling fancy...)
