Gluten-free Meatball Subs Recipe

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhile driving past a pizza joint Pilot and I frequented, more often than we do now that I’m gluten-intolerant, I lamented how much I missed eating meatball subs. To which Pilot commented, he would create gluten-free meatball subs for us. Yes!

Because meatballs contain wheat in one form or another, eliminating that was the first step. Buying gluten-free sub rolls was the next. Armed and ready to tackle the assignment, Pilot set to work.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 Cup Choice Batter (If you can’t find this at your store, I would think crushed Rice or Corn Chex would work.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes

You will also need gluten-free sub rolls, (I use Schar baguettes.) one jar of pizza sauce – heated, and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the first 9 ingredients together. Shape into meatballs.

Brown meatballs in hot oil. Drain meatballs on paper towels. Bake in covered casserole dish for 20 minutes.

Place meatballs on gluten-free sub rolls. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Spoon heated pizza sauce over meatballs. Top off with more mozzarella. Place in microwave, 2 minutes, or until cheese has melted.


I wish you well.
