What a great post to read going into the weekend. This recipe looks great….easy to prepare. Can you tell me if this recipe is gluten-free or what I would have to do to make it so. Sausage is usually GF, but sometimes you just don’t know. If I can prepare this ensuring it’s gluten free, then I have something to make for the big game party this weekend. Thanks for posting.
Great question, Warren! This recipe uses coconut flour as a binder so it is both gluten-free and low-carb.
Oooouuuu this sounds yummy. I love cheese and I love meatballs so now when you combine the two, it’s just a recipe for success. I will definitely try making this today. Hopefully it turns out as great as I imagined it in my head. Thank you for this lovely review, I had a great time reading it
Please check back after you make them and let me know how they turned out!
