Gluten Free recipes... what?

Today I tried being lazy - I have a pound of ground beef in the fridge and not a clue of what to do with it. I thought I would make meatballs, but don't have a good crockpot recipe. I googled and googled, read and re-read recipes. Shot down all the ones that require bread crumbs, because I don't keep gluten free bread crumbs on hand. They're icky. Then I shot down all the ones that call for a bag of frozen meatballs, gross! I got desperate and googled "gluten free meatballs" and suddenly everything had mushrooms, veal, pesto, cornmeal, cranberries, instant potato flakes (I don't even know what those are), cereal, rice, even crackers in the recipes. Um, what happened to good ol' meatballs? And I'm not putting crackers in my meatballs - gluten free crackers are so awful I won't eat them plain - what makes anyone think I want to eat them stuffed into meat?

I have my new assignment, and will post my results good or bad. I'm making spaghetti and meatballs in my crockpot today!!!!
