    Those look so yummy! Quick question — not to mess with your family recipe or anything, but if one doesn’t have rice flour, would a little bit of coconut flour work in a pinch? Just wanted your take in case you’d tried it and could warn me before I made a kitchen nightmare.

    @Mimi (Gingersnaps), I don’t use rice flour, I use brown rice bread crumbs. They’re two different things. You could try coconut flour – it might work. It’s really absorbent so it could possibly hold the meatballs together.

    I find that I can omit eggs and breadcrumbs/flour by mixing in about 1/4 cup of organic tomato paste (sugar free of course) and chopped or grated veggies like onion and bell pepper with the ground turkey. It works for meatloaf too.

    I will make these. Do you cook them before freezing them? Thanks.

    It’s such a great backup to have freezer meals, I’ve got to stock mine up in preparation for some surgery soon, and these meatballs look like a winner.

    Your meatballs look like a great thing to have on hand in the freezer. I’ve been feeling the urge to get my freezer stocked up too. So, far it’s been mostly soup. I don’t have much freezer space but it is nice to have a few things to fall back on in a pinch. I can relate to the idea of being too tired to cook and I’m not even pregnant.

    I made a huge batch of meatballs during my last trimester and stuck them in the freezer for snacks, and meals after the baby came. My mother’s recipe is pretty similar, though she adds a bit of orange zest to the tomato sauce and she uses oats that have been lightly pulsed in the food processor. (Can you eat oats? Some gluten-intolerant people cannot.) Your picture looks super yummy!

    @abbie, Yes, I can eat oats. They would work great in place of the brown rice bread crumbs. :)

    Thanks for the reminder on freezer cooking. I keep meaning to make big batches of recipes just like this one. My husband loves meatballs, so this is definitely one to add to my list!

    Love the idea of freezing homemade meatballs. Have you ever tried using cooked quinoa in place of bread crumbs/oatmeal? I just did for the first time last night in our mini-meatloaves and loved the result. The quinoa adds great texture and flavor.

    @Jen, Yes, I have a meatloaf in my cookbook that uses quinoa instead of bread crumbs. It’s delicious. :)
