Magnificent Meatballs – gluten and top 8 allergen free!
This is a wonderful addition to any pot luck, and no one will be able to tell that these delicious treats are gluten free and allergy friendly!!! Both methods taste delicious, but I prefer the texture of conventional-oven-made meatballs.
These are soooooo good, and they will make your house smell like you are making supreme pizza!
