These Asian Style Gluten Free Meatballs are perfect for entertaining, especially when you’re tired of serving the usual party appetizers.
This gluten free meatball recipe is super easy and fun to make. Get the kids to help you! You can also double the batch and freeze up half for later.
These are the ultimate gluten free cocktail meatballs! Tasty, popular with guests (especially if they’re gluten or dairy free) and easy to transport to potlucks in an insulated casserole carrier.
If you’re looking for meatballs for kids, this recipe fits the bill, too! That’s because they’re fun to eat with toothpicks and dipping sauce. After all what kid doesn’t love to dip their food in a tangy sauce?
Making Asian Style Gluten Free Meatballs
To keep pork meatball recipe gluten free and dairy free, I recommend using Massel bouillon cubes and seasoning granules. They’re made with premium vegetables, herbs, and sea salt in a factory that’s entirely gluten free to prevent cross contamination.
I order all my Massel products on Amazon since buying in bulk is the most cost-effective and convenient way to go!
My favorite is the Massel Gluten-Free, Salt Reduced All Purpose Bouillon & Seasoning Granules, which I use on vegetable and ground meat sautés, grilled vegetables, and in meatloaf. So good!
Serving up your gluten free meatballs recipe
You can cut the recipe in half and serve the Asian Style Gluten Free Meatballs with a veggie stir fry or over brown rice with a spicy Asian sauce. Or make a full batch and freeze half of the gluten free/dairy free meatballs for another night’s dinner.
