When I first started out making dinner for myself and husband, I always searched for shortcuts. After learning that most storebought meatballs contain milk and eggs, I decided to try making them by simply omitting the binder. Guess what?! It works, time after time!! Although I haven’t tested it yet, I bet an egg replacer like flax egg would work great though. If you really want the parmesan cheese taste, you can buy vegan parm at the store.
These meatballs come together so easily and in no time at all, that I really don’t need shortcuts. For years this has been at the top of our favorite dinners list and I’m sure it’ll make its way to yours.
Simply mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, roll into balls, place on prepared baking sheet. Skip the messy and time-consuming step of pan frying, just form the meatballs and place in preheated oven. As the meatballs bake, cook pasta and throw together a quick dinner salad. Like magic, everything will come together in the blink of an eye.
Weeknight dinners don’t need to be boring, time-consuming, or stressful. These allergy-friendly meatballs will please everybody in the family and are perfect for making ahead and freezing. Who doesn’t love an easy freezer meal?
