“Everything Free” Meatballs

5 Nov

These are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, spice free, pork free and additive free, which for a change rather than complicating things makes them super simple!

For 500g beef mince (1lb ground beef)….. chop half an onion finely, chop a few cloves of garlic, add a Tbs of seasoning.  Depending what you are doing with the meatballs the seasoning can be changed up, I use mixed herbs for multi-purpose (thyme, oregano, sage), basil would work for tomato based meals, curry would be a nice twist, there are limitless options really.

Squish it all together with your hands, then shape in to balls.  Fry them until they are cooked to the middle (I don’t bother with oil because the mince ends up releasing fat anyway), or just brown them if they will be cooking longer in a sauce.

After I cut the onion and garlic Bottomless Tummy 3 (nearly 5 years old) did the work on these.  She was VERY proud to be able to present her family with the dinner she had made!  In the next few days I’ll try to get up the easy sauce we threw together to have with them.
