I have been making mini gluten free meatballs for quite some time now and they are always a hit! One of my favorite food compliments is when Hubby won’t stop eating what I make. I had to kick him out of the kitchen to keep him from eating all of these…and he still managed to walk out with one in his mouth.
Another favorite compliment…The happy food dance that Little Miss does when she eats them. Sometimes she even sings a little yummy song.
Another compliment…the fact that Mr. Monster will eat these before he eats the noodles…his noodles! That’s some strong competition for a toddler.
Know what else I love about them? They can be whipped up in practically no time.
Plus you can make a bunch and freeze them for later.
Ingredients for Gluten Free Meatballs
- 1lb ground beef
- 1/2 cup Instant Oatmeal
- 2-3 cloves minced garlic
- 1 Tablespoon Oregano
- 1 Tablespoon Basil
- 1/2 Tablespoon Parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 egg
How to make your Gluten Free Meatballs
In a large mixing bowl, mix your ground beef, oatmeal, garlic, oregano, basil, parsley, salt, and egg. aka…all the ingredients.
Scoop into balls and place in a mini muffin pan. I like to use a cookie scoop for this, but a spoon or your fingers work just as well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
In our house, I like to make them with my grandma’s spaghetti sauce.
Later that week i use the rest of the batch for meatball subs. It’s an easy way to get two meals out of one recipe! Total win-win for me.
Hope you Enjoy!

I was trying to find bread crumbs at the store that weren’t full of garbage. This solves that problem!
