These gluten-free Italian-style meatballs are a perfect solution for entertaining or for family dinners.
It’s time to take a poll! Are you ready?
Go ahead and raise your hand if you have a friend or family member with some sort of dietary restriction.
Now, keep your hand raised if you have someone in your life who maintains a gluten-free diet.
That’s what I thought: there are still a lot of hands raised.
Thank you for participating in my fake poll.
I recently promised to share Boyfriend’s famous meatball recipe with you. Well, this is not it. (Don’t you hate it when people pull that crap?) I am still going to share that recipe with you, but the thing is…his recipe contains breadcrumbs. And today we are talking about all things gluten-free.
I’ll be honest, even though I have several friends who are gluten-free, I still have a hard time convincing myself to go out of my way to buy wacky, expensive ingredients to make a gluten-free recipe. So when I started investigating the idea of gluten-free meatballs, I was struck by an idea:
What would happen if I added ricotta to my meatball recipe?
As fate would have it, ricotta makes a pretty good binder in meatballs. Not to mention that it’s easy to find and, at the end of the day, you get an extra serving of cheese. I know I don’t have to take any polls to determine that a little extra cheese will put most of you in your happy place.
Pair these gluten-free meatballs with your favorite gluten-free spaghetti and a lovely side salad and you have a meal that is perfect for serving to your hard-to-feed friends and family members. Freeze leftover meatballs for a quick and easy meal later on!
