    home made meatballs

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have any meatball recipes?
    I love meatballs with white rice.
    What would be a good "filler" substitute for the bread crumbs?
    Im not much of a cook, but lately have been using white rice flour to replace wheat flour with good success.
    Do you think white rice flour may work as a substitute/filler.

    Sometimes I finely chop some veggies inmy food processor...yam, carrot, onion , red pepper, zucchini and add it in with a couple of eggs to bind it. I make these in muffin tins and put them in my kids' lunches. Eaten cold.

    But you don't need 'filler'. Just meat and spices is good. Google 'paleo meatballs' for some recipes.

    use lots of herbs and grated parmesan on lieu of breadcrumbs

    white flour is worse than wheat flour, and is not primal.

    Im substituting white "rice" flour for the wheat flour. Its not primal but i believe it causes less issues then wheat flour.

    I actually used to make meatballs a lot a few months ago. 1lb of meat, 1 egg some onion, basil and pepper was all I needed to make some good ones. Mix it all together and put them on a cooking sheet for 25 minutes then put in like 1/2 cup of water so they don't dry out. They turn out pretty good. I'm a big fan of just playing around with seasonings so that's my advice if they don't have enough taste.

    Meatballs are my favorite! I've had a lot of success without any fillers. I even skip the egg sometimes. Adding in your favorite (minced) vegetables and herbs is so delicious though!
