Divine Meatballs

I was looking at Pinterest when I came across this recipe for Gluten-Free Meatballs.

I have been avoiding corn for while, so I was curious what this recipe used. It was a pleasant surprise to find oats in the recipe! Oats are one thing that doesn’t contain gluten, but it can be cross-contaminated from being grown close to other grains. I always buy gluten-free oats for this reason.

I also avoid beef, so I used 1 pound each of ground chicken and ground turkey. Skotte bought some mild poultry sausage for the sausage portion. I mixed them up and baked them yesterday, early in the morning before the heat really set in.

For the sauce, I sauteed an onion in olive oil and butter with a sprinkle of garlic powder before adding an organic jar of roasted garlic tomato sauce. We need to restock some garlic bulbs soon. The extra onion really adds a nice flavor. My dad had some cooking sherry in the pantry and I also added about a tablespoon of that.

I was thinking about adding a can of stems and pieces of mushrooms but Skotte doesn’t like them, so I was nice.  I ate my mushrooms during my breakfast today instead.

The last thing I did was prepare some brown rice pasta.  Dad usually made the pasta, so I don’t have much experience with the exact timing. The pasta ended up being a tad too crunchy, but still edible.  The meatballs were the best part by far!
