Apple Pork BBQ Meatballs (Paleo/AIP) are great as an appetizer, a meal with sides, or as a game day tailgating snack. Easy to make, too!
You guys. These little gems are going in the category of Recipes That No One Will Suspect Are AIP/Paleo. I’ve wanted to make some barbecue meatballs for a while now, and inspiration finally hit. Huzzah!
There are a couple of secret ingredients that add a little something-something. One is pork panko, which lends a very slight hint of bacon. The other is organic pumpkin purée, which I promise you won’t be able to taste. All the tastes that you would expect of an apple barbecue sauce are here – the molasses, the vinegar, the apples. When you put them all together… *chef’s kiss!
These babies will be fantastic as a party appetizer, a game day snack, tailgating food, or even as a meal at home. Try them:
- In Gordita Tortillas with shredded cabbage, like a barbecue taco
- With Curly Fries on movie night
- Next to AIP Mashed Potatoes and Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts as a meal
You won’t need special equipment for this one, but there are two items that are really handy to have. One is a one-tablespoon cookie scoop. You can use this to portion out consistent amounts of meat, and save some mess on your hands.
The other handy item is a silicone baking mat for your baking tray. This will save you from buying parchment paper, and the meatballs will not stick to it!
Happy fall, y’all! As always, I’m wishing you great love and deep healing.
