Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs

Foodie friends, you don’t have to wait for November!  Try my Gluten Free Turkey Meatballs whenever you feel like having a little “Thanksgiving Lite”!  The flavors of sage, thyme, onion and celery mirror the big Thanksgiving dinner in a fraction of the time.

A little ricotta in the mix keeps the meatballs nice and moist.  Potato flakes and rolled oats are the magic that hold these gluten free meatballs together.  You are going to love this easy entree!  Complete the meal with a side of stuffing and drizzle of turkey gravy.

Use an electric chopper to finely mince the onion and celery.  Combine the first 8 ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Add the breadcrumbs, potato flakes and oatmeal to the wet ingredients a little at a time until well combined (use your hands).

Line a baking sheet with foil and mist with cooking spray.  Spread 1 cup of breadcrumbs in a bowl or plate.  Form 12-14 meatballs, rolling each meatball in the breadcrumbs and arrange on the baking sheet at least 2″ apart.

Broil 5 minutes on high, turn and broil another 5 minutes.

With dinner on the table in under a half hour, you will want to add this to your weeknight rotation.  Everyone will love it!

Notes ♪♫ Oh those breadcrumbs, don’t they look amazing?  They are Aleia’s Italian Breadcrumbs, and yes, they are gluten free.  A bit more expensive but so worth it to get that true breadcrumb taste!
