Who doesn’t love homemade meatballs?! They can serve as a great protein snack, or the star in the best spaghetti sauce and pasta. In the south, a favorite meal of many is to serve homemade meatballs over mashed potatoes. You can always grab a bag of Kroger sales ad frozen meatballs, but I like this recipe for those days that you want to shop your pantry and stay home. My scrumptious meatball recipe is also gluten free. WooHoo!

What a great recipe! I have to try this out next week. My kids love meatballs!
Yay! We do too. So simple and yum!
I love meatballs, and these look so good! And I love how simple they are!
Yay! I love simple!
These looks yummy, I like the use of liquid smoke!
Liquid Smoke is SO gooood! 😉 I had never heard of it until I had smokey tuna dip. Have you tried that recipe of mine? You could just put tuna in the top search bar and find it. So good!
I love an easy meal like this, especially if I can shp my pantry!
Great- and perfect timing. I just made meatballs yesterday on the stove top and was thinking that I really need to find a better oven option.
I hear ya! I’ve fought this “oven” idea because I couldn’t imagine them being good. I was so wrong!
These meats seem easy to make, which is something I always look for in a recipe. But, I think you really had me sold with the Italian seasoning. A meatball has to pack a little flavor, right?
Yes! Lots of seasoning. NOBODY wants flavorless meat, right?!
That looks really good!

I love homemade meatballs, what a great recipe!
I’m so happy we have all the ingredients for this in our fridge/pantry! We love Costco but you’re right, there are days when you just gotta clean out your stuff (or, you know, lazy days lol). This looks great. Can’t wait to try them!
I love tasty and simple, the only way we do it in our house, pinned this for later to access your links to other great recipes, thank you!
Yummy! I have been trying to find recipes for healthier versions of the foods we love. This is a great way to have meatballs without all of the fillers.
Wow these look delicious thanks for sharing the recipe! I am always on the lookout for new recipes. I will be trying it!

Great meatball recipe. I love a good meatball. I love adding onion pulp too. Makes them so moist and delicious.
My daughter loves meatballs so I usually use the frozen ones for a quick dinner, but this looks super easy and so good! I’ll have to try these out!
Totally saving this! I need to make meatballs more often! So easy and so yummy!
looks yammy and easy to make! Thanks for sharing
Oh yummy! Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe.
You make it sound so easy. Pinning for sure!
It really WAS!
I love meatballs and I usually cook them in the oven for the reason you said, you can set it and forget it! Nice to know that you think they’re also tastier. 😉
I’m excited to be able to make homemade meatballs in just 20 minutes. It takes that long to run to the grocery store to buy a bag of meatballs. Congrats, you’re featured this week at the #ThisIsHowWeRoll Link Party.
These look so delicious!
