1 cup gluten-free quick oats

Step by Step Instructions

Prepare ingredients as suggested above.

Preheat a standard oven to 425 degrees. If making links, lightly spray a sheet pan with a clean, high-heat spray oil. Reserve to the side.

In your stand mixer with paddle attachment, add all the meatball ingredients. 

Mix just until uniformly combined (overmixing can lead to a too-firm texture).

Cover and chill for 1 hour.

For medium to large meatballs:

Using a medium to large scoop (equal to ½ cup or larger), scoop the mixture into 12-14 portions, in a single layer on the sheet pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.

For small-sized sliders:

Using wet hands, form 1½ to 2 inch balls out of mixture and place in a single layer on sheet pan.

Bake for about 15 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
