Gluten Free Homemade Meatballs


Gluten Free Homemade Meatballs | Small Town Living in Nevada

The other night I made Loco Moco for dinner and had leftover hamburger that needed to be used up. What better way than to make meatballs.

Growing up with my Italian grandmother, she taught me a lot about cooking and while I took lots of notes over the years, most recipes don’t taste exactly as hers. I believe she had put so much love into her cooking it shone through and through. Nevertheless, I can make most of her dishes come quite close in taste. And at the moment I can’t wait for dinner!
