Baked Italian Meatballs Gluten Free

I love these Baked Italian Meatballs and Park Avenue Pizza in Bloomfield, Ct.  makes the best Baked Meatballs and Baked Sausage.  Since I am back on my low carb diet after my cruise, I decided that I was going to make a low carb version of Baked Italian Meatballs.  So I have substituted Garbanzo flour for bread crumbs, and they came out perfectly.  I know you are going to love them.

Baked Italian Meatballs - Gluten Free


2 lbs ground beef
1/2 cup garbanzo flour
2 tsp basil
2 tsp parsley
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
3 cloves crushed garlic
2 TB worchestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper


4 cups marinara or meat sauce link to my recipe
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 350 and spray 9 x 9 inch casserole dish with non stick cooking spray.

Mix ground beef and all seasonings together and form into large meatballs.  About 3 inches each

Put the meatballs into the casserole dish.

Then pour the marinara sauce or Meat sauce over the meatballs.

Spread the mozzarella over the sauce and next spread the Parmesan on top of the mozzarella.

Put in the oven and bake for 1 hour.

Serves 4

I made mine in two batches, one with cheese and one without cheese for David.  I only got 7 meatballs, but you could easily get 8 meatballs.  Serve with a salad and you've got a meal.

I hope that you like my gluten free Baked Italian Meatballs.  I always love hearing from you.
