Sometimes an easy, tasty meatball recipe is a good one to reach for when you don’t have too much in the house.  I used the Parmesan cheese in a can, but you can use freshly grated Parmesan cheese and I think these could be even better.

2.8 lbs lean ground beef (1.3 kg)
1/cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, (60 mL)
  OR 2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
2 eggs
1/cup Parmesan cheese (125 mL)
1/cup low-sugar ketchup (60 mL)
4 tsp crushed garlic (20 mL)
1 tbsp dried parsley (15 mL)
  (OR use 3 tbsp (45 mL) fresh parsley)
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL)

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

In large bowl, combine ground beef, Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR coconut flour.  In medium bowl, beat eggs.  Stir in Parmesan cheese, ketchup, garlic, parsley (dried, OR fresh), salt and pepper.  Add the egg mixture to the ground beef mixture and mix well with your hands.  Form small balls (about a heaping tablespoonful) and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake 25 minutes or until browned and cooked through.  Check after 20 minutes.
