How To Make Gluten-Free Meatballs

Many traditional meatball recipes require pan-frying meatballs in a frying pan and then simmering them in sauce, but baking meatballs in the oven is so much easier!  If you were pan-frying meatballs, you have to do it in batches since they won’t all fit on a frying pan at once, then have to stand over the stove and flip the meatballs with a spatula.  When you bake the meatballs, you just put them in the oven and the oven does all the work!

The baking method is completely passive – you just put the meatballs in the oven, set the oven timer and take them out when the timer beeps.  The less work the better!

Meatballs Without Bread Crumbs
