My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Spinach Meatballs

The girls and I love these meatballs. We eat them plain, serve them over rice, noodles, use them as a pizza topping, etc. They are also good cold, so we take them with us when we go away.

Spinach Meatballs

2 - 3 pounds ground turkey, chicken, or beef
2 cups chopped spinach
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped pepper
Seasonings desired - I used a mixture of salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder,
       and onion powder

Thoroughly combine all of the ingredients. Roll the mixture into 1" balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes until cooked through. Drain as needed. Serve immediately. You can also freeze on the baking sheet then transfer into a Ziploc bag to store in the freezer.
*  Makes approximately 70 meatballs.
