Paleo Meatballs with Nightshade Free BBQ Sauce

· This duo is amazing. ·

June 15, 2017 26 Comments

There are a million trillion different ways to make meatballs and only a few ways to make nightshade free BBQ sauce.... this is one of the good ones!

Dacey is allergic to beef and Ozzie is allergic to chicken. So, Dacey always gets nuggets (which I will make in another post soon), and Ozzie always gets these delicious little meatballs. They’re super easy to heat up as a snack or to make for a meal with some veggies. The sauce has a nice tangy, hickory smoked flavor and goes so well with it.
