Mighty Meatballs


You’ve heard of normal meatballs. Meh. These are Mighty Meatballs. Full of flavor and size. They will take over your plate  and have you think you can handle 3 or 4, but in reality 1 or 2 will fill you right up.

Why The Name “Mighty Meatballs”

My eight year-old helped name these. He is insane about them-convinced that everyone needs to try them. Josh loved the size of them and said they were so mighty, they’d turn you into Hercules. He’s right!


Did I mention my Mighty Meatballs are gluten free too? Tons of recipes add bread pieces or breadcrumbs to meatballs. I took a different approach. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better-right?!?

Just out of the oven. Mmm…….

According to my son, you should make them just as big as I did and make them with my homemade pasta sauce. Boil some brown rice noodles and you’ll have yourself a kid approved dinner that secretly you approve too. 😉

Almost ready to bake!

I really should have snapped a pic of little Rori shoving her face with these. Super cute and messy. I wish I was better at taking pics in the moment, but I’m usually just enjoying the moment too gosh darn much! My husband is much better at taking pictures in the moment. We’ll go on vacation and come home to find I have a measly 6 pics on my phone and he has 109! In fact, he took just about every picture from our Disneyland trip!!

Enough about my lack of “picture taking in the moment” skills. I sure know how to photograph food though!! Swoon over this 👇

Here’s a recipe you’ll want to pin and save! If you cook like I do, you’ll use this one about once a month or more! Mighty Meatballs are also on our meal plan so if you’ve signed up or are thinking about it, try this recipe  with my homemade pasta sauce!

Mighty Meatballs

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 16 large meatballs

Serving Size: 2 meatballs

Mighty Meatballs



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spray a 9x13 pan with olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, eggs, milk and seasonings. I like mixing together with my hands, simply because it seems to get the flavor into the meat well.
  3. Now add in the flaxseed meal and almond flour. Keep mixing until you can see the seasoning and flour pieces incorporated into the meat.
  4. The fun part! Using you hands (again), begin rolling the meat mixture into a ball. I like making the meatballs fairly big-but it's up to you what size you want.
  5. As you finish them, place them in in pan.
  6. Once done, bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Check to make sure they're done by cutting one if half. If it's pink in the middle, cook for a few more minutes.
