If you’re looking for the best, easiest paleo meatball recipes, you’re in the right place.
Read on for a collection of gluten-free, dairy-free, breadcrumb-free, egg-free meatball recipes.
We are huge meatball fans around here, but because my husband avoids dairy and I typically skip gluten, I thought meatballs were a thing of the past.
After a few years, though, I decided to start experimenting with different recipes and found that you can make meatballs without breadcrumbs and cheese, and guess what? They’re still delicious.
But here’s the thing: I know some of you also avoid eggs, or have children who can’t eat eggs.
So I’ve been on a mission to come up with meatball recipes free from all the allergens.
Free from all.the.things: dairy-free, cheese-free, egg-free, gluten-free, breadcrumb-free, nut-free.
And the good news? They actually taste good.
Now all you need to do is grab these super easy paleo meatball recipes and get cooking!
Can I freeze meatballs?
Yes, and you have two options when it comes to freezing.
You can cook the meatballs completely, allow them to cool to room temperature, and then freeze them in an air-tight container, or freeze them raw, then drop into a hot sauce and allow them to cook fully in the sauce.
Personally, I prefer to cook a double batch and freeze already cooked.
My best trick it to freeze the meatballs on a sheet pan lined with a silicone baking mat to avoid sticking.
Once frozen, I ad the meatballs to an airtight container, and can grab a few out at a time, whenever the family is craving meatballs for dinner.
What if the meatballs are difficult to roll?
Meatballs can occasionally be too sticky to roll, especially when made with ground turkey.
If the mixture is too sticky, simply spoon the mixture using a small ice cream scoop or spoon.
Can I substitute turkey for ground beef or ground beef for turkey?
Yes, these swaps can be made in these recipes.
Keep in mind that white meat ground turkey has little to no fat content, and so will result in a dry meatball.
