Gluten Free Meatballs Recipe

Meatball Ingredients:

  • 1 small to medium sweet onion
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, peeled, cut in half
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled, cut into several pieces
  • 1 pound of organic grass fed ground beef or buffalo- either works
  • 1 pound of organic ground pork
  • 1/2 cup Annie’s Naturals or Muir Glen Organic Ketchup

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (my secret ingredient!)

  • Dash of red pepper flakes, for heat, if desired
  • Olive oil, as needed

    These meatballs were really good! I didn’t have any gluten free breadcrumbs, so I crushed up some GF crackers and used those instead. The meatballs didn’t stay together that well, but they were very good. They had a sweet flavor. Mmmm.
