Gluten Free Mac and Cheese Meatballs Recipe

By: Carol Kicinski

Ingredients

One 5 ounce package Pastariso Mac and Cheeze

1 ½ pounds lean ground beef or turkey

1 small onion, grated

1 small carrot, grated

1 cup gluten free bread crumbs

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

Gluten free non-stick cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats. Prepare the Mac and Cheeze according to the package directions omitting the additional milk and butter. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Combine the ground beef with the grated onion and carrot, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Add in the prepared Mac and Cheeze. Using about ¼ cup per meatball, roll into balls. Place on prepared baking sheets, spray with cooking spray,  and bake for 20 minutes or until they are browned. The meatballs will feel soft; they firm up a little as they cool. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
