Thai Meatballs

Using a couple of different herbs and spices can really make your usual meatballs a little bit different.

Sometimes we get stuck making food with the same flavours over and over but with a few extra ingredients,  you can add a new taste dimension to meatballs.

Shallow fried  or steamed, these are easy to assemble and cook.   If you are using a steamer, line it with baking paper and spray of oil.

They are great with a gf soy sauce, sweet chili sauce or a Vietnamese Dipping Sauce.

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, The Perfect Hors D’ouvres For Any Party!

Gluten Free Living by Pepperchick


Not everyone is a fan of chicken wings.  Most of my family members are, frankly, grossed out by the bones, and having to pick around the bits that are “not quite meat”.  Boneless wings are great, but trying to find ones that are gluten free is difficult, and purchasing pieces of chicken breast, cutting, breading, and cooking them can be a real pain.

The solution to this dilemma is this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs.  One recipe makes over 60 bite sized meatballs, which are  plenty for a crowd.  If your crowd is bigger… double or triple the recipe. 

These little meatballs are slightly spicy on their own, and have crunchy little bits of celery peeking out, not to mention plenty of buttery buffalo sauce.  Just serve a nice gluten free Blue Cheese Dressing and some celery sticks along side, and watch them disappear!

Don’t you dare buy pre-made meatballs ever again. Don’t take that as a challenge.

This is not truth or dare. It’s not opposite day either. No but really it isn’t. Are you confused? Good.

Now let’s get to the real business.

For the longest time, I was intimidated by meatballs. You’re handling raw meat, first of all, and they teach you right in elementary school that raw meat contains big green germs singing self-deprecating songs.

Even scarier, though, was the thought of not knowing how your finished product tastes until it’s done and it’s over and it’s too late to make any changes. For someone who eats half of the guacamole in the process of tweaking ingredients, this is absolutely terrifying.

But friends, be terrified no longer: I have ventured into the land of big green singing germs and I have brought this recipe back just for you.
