How To Make Whole 30 Meatballs – Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Keto, Low Carb
Step 1: Mix all ingredients together. Be sure not to over-mix to prevent tough meatballs.
Step 2: Roll mixture into balls (approximately the size of golf balls). Wet hands with water during the process to prevent meat from sticking to hands. Transfer to a greased baking dish.
Step 3: Bake at 400ºF for 25-30 minutes. Broil on high 3-4 minutes to brown tops.
What Can Be A Substitute For BreadCrumbs In Meatballs?
This recipe uses almond meal in place of breadcrumbs. But most any mild flavored ground nut would work. I have also seen mashed potatoes used in place of the breadcrumbs, but I have yet to try that method. Once I do, I’ll report back.
Can Meatballs Be Frozen?
Absolutely. Meatballs can be precooked then frozen. Or you can prepare the meatballs and freeze them raw. They should be good in the freezer 2-3 months.
