Gluten Free Meatballs

I wanted to make something delicious for my niece in Charleston, but it had to be gluten free.  So I took some of may favorite recipes and made them gluten free.  Here is my favorite meatball recipe using gluten free ingredients.  They are really good!

Gluten Free Meatballs

2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup gluten free quick oats
1 cup almond milk
3 Tablespoons of minced onion
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons white vinegar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
5 Tablespoons minced onion
Dash of Tabasco

In a large bowl mix together the ground beef, oats, almond mild, 3 Tablespoons minced onion, salt and pepper.  Roll into meatballs (I measure about 1/4 cup mixture per meatball).  Will make about 16 meatballs.  You can make them smaller if you'd like.  Refrigerate them for about 30 minutes to get them firm.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Put about 2 Tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Brown meatballs until browned. (It doesn't have to be cooked all the way because it will cook in the oven.)  Put in a 9 x 13 pan.

Mix all ingredients for the sauce and pour evenly over the meatballs.  Bake for 45  minutes or until bubbly and hot.

**I found that if I grated a large onion it was enough for the meatballs and the sauce.
