While I tend to be a lazy cook more often than not,
sometimes I take the extra time for these family favorite meatballs.
These are a true novelty in our house,
and it’s always three cheers for mom when I make them.
I’ll take it!
It’s not that this meatball recipe is hard.
It just takes some time and loving care.
I mean, anytime you’re handing raw meat and rolling anything into 3 dozen balls…
I consider that work. Ya know?
Basically what I’m getting at,
these homemade meatballs aren’t quite as easy as frozen chicken nuggets.
But again, the extra work and time is worth it!
Not only are these so good, but there’s usually enough for leftovers and my family absolutely loves them.
I think this is my son’s favorite food of all time.
So get ready to dive in, my friend.
Because you’ll want to make these delicious meatballs for your family.
Three cheers for mom will feel great.
Even though these are dairy-free, egg-free, and wheat-free…
they taste normal and absolutely delicious.
I love that I can make these safely for my father-in-law who’s allergic to wheat,
for my niece who’s allergic to egg,
and of course for my boy who’s allergic to milk.
You don’t even need milk or egg replacers.
These truly don’t take milk or egg.
And they stay together wonderfully!
Nobody will even know they are allergy-friendly.

HAPPY MEATBALL REVIEWS
“This recipe was just as good as my friend’s Italian family meatballs with milk and cheese. Made them for a party and everyone was extremely delighted (especially our gluten free guest and my dairy/egg free child). I was worried they wouldn’t be moist without the milk, but the onions did it.” Blog Reader
“This is a very good meatball recipe. Whether you need a dairy-free meatball or not, it’s delicious! This recipe is a keeper.” Pinterest Reader
HOW TO EAT MEATBALLS
These meatballs are wonderfully versatile, as well.
Serve them with marinara and pasta in a classic dutch oven (affiliate) Italian dish.
Then leftover marinara meatballs make great sub sandwiches on dairy-free buns!
Or simmer as barbecue meatballs for a crowd-pleasing appetizer.
Grape jelly meatballs are also amazing in the slow cooker for parties.
I promise, your guests will love them!
So much better than store-bought frozen meatballs. For sure.
We don’t even have a favorite way to eat these because all the ways are so tasty.

HOMEMADE MEATBALLS NO MILK, EGG, WHEAT
Preheat oven to 375
Makes about 36 1″ meatballs
1 onion (finely diced)
1 clove minced garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground burger
1/2 cup quick oats uncooked
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon course kosher salt
HOW TO MAKE MEATBALLS
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with your hands, just until fully mixed.
Form 1″ meatballs and bake on a foil-lined cookie sheet for about 20 minutes.
I make mine the size of golf balls and 20 minute bake time is perfect.
Internal temperature should reach 160 degrees although I always go a little over.
Then simmer the cooked meatballs in marinara sauce, barbecue sauce, or eat them plain.
Hope you enjoy these dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free meatballs as much as we do!
