Spaghetti and meatballs is such a lovely dish when you need a quick comfort food. When you are gluten free and egg free, that gets a little bit more challenging.

Not anymore! Here is a recipe for gluten free, egg free meatballs. They freeze wonderfully and are super delicious. Make a big batch, wrap them in bunches of six or eight (depending on your family size), and toss them in the freezer for spaghetti night.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 2 small carrots20150301_135633_resized
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 pounds of meat (beef and pork combo is good, let me know how turkey works)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/3 cup gluten free breadcrumbs (you could use GF quick oats too)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.20150301_142431_resized
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  3. Place everything into a bowl and mash them together. Don’t over mix it though, it makes them a bit denser.
  4. Make golf ball sized meatballs by rolling the mixture in your hands.
  5. Place the balls on the parchment paper.
  6. Put into the centre of the oven and bake for about 30 minutes (until they brown a little).
