Homemade meatballs are very easy to prepare and you can freeze them to use at a later time. The batch makes so much that I was able to divide it into 3 meals. This meal can be gluten free as long as your meat and oats are Gluten Free.

When I prepare BBQ meatballs for the freezer I simply pull them out of freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. Be sure to check out our Freezer Cooking Series.  You could also make these meatballs into Muffin Size using this technique of meatloaf in a muffin tin.

  1. Wow! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  2. These look so good but, unfortunately, my daughter doesn’t care for bbq sauce. :( Would these meatballs be good for something else like swedish meatballs or spaghetti and meatballs?

  3. These look FAB!! Can’t wait to try them!

  4. This recipe sounds delicious! I hope I can keep from eating the entire package of Way Better Snacks while cooking them! :-)

  5. This is a great idea. I always add crackers or bread crumbs to meatloaf or meatballs but I never would have thought about adding Way Better tortilla chips! I’ll have to try it out!

  6. I’m going to have to try these. My family would love them.

  7. Putting on the menu for next week! Love Way Better!!!

  8. My husband and boys will love this! Can’t wait to make them!
