Pork Sage and Lemon Meatballs

Pork Sage And Lemon Meatballs

Grain free, gluten free, paleo.

Pork Sage and Lemon Meatballs – “I think these need to be on the menu every week,” said my husband. The kids agreed and my eldest daughter ate three whole platefuls at dinner – yep our family loves these meatballs!

The trick is to use a mix of pork and veal mince. The texture is much softer than beef and you get a melt in your mouth meatball that everyone will be asking you the recipe for.

Plus, these are so quick to prepare. I put the youngest two kids in the bath and my eldest daughter and I rolled meatballs together for a whole 8 minutes – and the tray was done.

Serve with a mix of steamed vegetables and you’ll have a quick dinner that satisfies like pasta – but without all the inflammatory gluten.
