Gluten Free Sneaky Double-Meat-Balls

Gluten Free Sneaky Double-Meat-Balls | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I’ve been itching to share this sneaky recipe with you all. And I’ve been itching to make some stroganoff meatballs over mashed potatoes with another batch. You see, I made a double batch, fully intending to make two recipes out of these,  and I LEFT THEM ON THE COUNTER ALL NIGHT! Gah, the horror—I HATE wasting food.

But there is no need to hold out on sharing these Gluten Free Sneaky Double-Meat-Balls any longer. You can still use them in spaghetti and marinara, or on a meatball sub, or swimming in sweet honey BBQ sauce.

You see, the trick to these meatballs is they are cooked in the sauce. And they get every bit more tender in their saucy bath. And the sneaky part…they are full of bits of vitamin pack cabbage that you really can’t see at all, or taste whatsoever, but the kids get that dose of veggies they need.

For a double batch to make two meals, follow the ingredients and directions below. For a single batch, cut the recipe in half. Have fun mushing and mixing!

Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
2 slices gluten free multi grain bread
1/2 cup cabbage, grated
1/2 cup onion, diced
2 gloves garlic, minced
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 Tb Italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Directions:
In a small food processor, break down the gluten free multi grain bread into fine crumbs.

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. You can use a stand mixer or take off your rings and mix with your bare hands. It’s completely fine either way.

Next roll the mixture into 1 1/2 meatballs, making 32 meatballs for a half batch and 64 meatballs for a double batch.

Cook the meatballs in simmering liquid about 20-25 minutes until cooked through. You can even cook these meatballs in a soup. They are very versatile.

To save the second batch for later, boil in water and freeze on wax paper until set, then transfer to a plastic ziplock bag for freezer storage, up to 2 weeks. Reheat in sauce of choice.
