Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1/4 cup crushed crispy rice squares cereal
2 tablespoons milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon black medium grind pepper
1 pound ground beef
Creamy Sauce:
3 tablespoons Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1-3/4 cups gluten-free beef broth
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup sour cream



Combine all ingredients and blend well. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes (or longer).

Shape meat mixture into 1-inch balls, using moistened hands or a small scoop. Place meatballs on baking sheets with sides that have been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 400°F for 12 to 15 minutes.

Make the Creamy Sauce while the meatballs bake.

Creamy Sauce:

Mix the corn starch, beef broth and garlic powder in a large skillet. Stir thoroughly to mix corn starch into the broth before turning on heat. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring gently until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and let cool 1 to 2 mintues. Stir in sour cream. Add baked meat balls. Simmer over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes.

Sauce and meatballs can also be ladled over gluten-free noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.

Recipe Note: If using a gluten-free beef base to make the beef broth, mix 2 teaspoons of base with 1-3/4 cups cold water; then add corn starch. (Don’t use hot water or the corn starch will lump!)
