To begin making Gluten Free Meatballs I diced up some yellow onion.

Then I dumped some lean ground beef into a mixing bowl.

Next I added in the diced onion, bread crumbs, large eggs, basil, salt and pepper.  I added 3 eggs to start and then decided to add the 4th egg so it would be moist enough to form the meatballs.

I added some olive oil to a large skillet and turned it to medium/medium low heat.

Then it was time to get my hands dirty.  I mixed all the ingredients into the ground beef until well combined. I started with a large wooden spoon but finished with my hands.

Then I wet my hands, scooped the ground beef out with a 3 tablespoon scoop and shaped the beef into balls before placing them in the heated skillet.

Once the first batch was in the skillet I covered the meatballs and allowed them to cook for 8 – 10 minutes.

Then I removed the lid and flipped the meatballs to cook them on the other side.  I covered them again.

After the first batch was completed I transferred them to a parchment paper lined baking sheet and started the next batch.

If adding the meatballs to home made Spaghetti Sauce you can do that after the sauce has simmered for an hour.

Serve up your meatballs with dipping sauce or smothered in your favourite gravy.

However you choose to serve up your Gluten Free Meatballs you will enjoy these morsels loaded with beef, onion and seasonings.

Our favourite meal is spaghetti and meatballs smothered in homemade Spaghetti Sauce.
