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, what do you expect?
Anytime you’re handing raw meat…
and rolling anything into 3 dozen balls…
I consider that work. HA!
Basically what I’m getting at,
is that these aren’t quite as easy as frozen chicken nuggets.
Know what I mean?
But again, the extra work and time will be worth it!
So get ready to dive into some raw meat, my friend.
Because you WILL want to make these delicious meatballs for your family…
because three cheers for mom always feels great.
Even though these are dairy-free, egg-free, and wheat-free,
They taste normal and delicious,
and we continually get awesome reviews on them.
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 amazing boy who’s severely allergic to milk.
HAPPY MEATBALL REVIEW
“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.”
This recipe is wonderfully versatile, as well.
Serve these with marinara and pasta in a classic dutch oven (affiliate) Italian dish.
Or simmer them as barbecue meatballs for a crowd-pleasing appetizer.
Plus, leftover meatballs make great sub sandwiches on dairy-free hot dog buns!
Now go dazzle your family, awesome mom.
I promise it’ll be worth it.
Our meatball recipe is below.
Dairy-Free Homemade Meatballs
Preheat oven to 375
Makes about 36 1″ meatballs
1 onion (finely diced)
1 clove minced garlic
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 pound ground burger
1/2 cup quick oats uncooked
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1 tsp. kosher salt
HOW TO MAKE DAIRY-FREE 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.
Enjoy your dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free meatballs!
