Delicious Low Carb Parmesan Meatballs

10 Meatballs125 cals

Meatball recipes are ALWAYS my favorite because of how quick they are. Seriously…the low carb parmesan meatballs we’re making today only take around 20 minutes and depending on how many you make they could last you a whole week!

Four steps! First, a large bowl. Second, add in and mix together all of your meatball ingredients starting with 1 pound of lean ground beef or turkey, 1 1/2 tablespoons of parsley, 1/4 teaspoon of oregano, 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup of almond flour, 1 large egg, 1 large egg white, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, a pinch of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, and 1/4 cup of water. Third, shape your meatballs and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Fourth and last, bake them on 350F/176C for around 20 minutes.

Now to take your balls to the next level, once they’re cooked remove them and place them into a smaller oven safe dish (so that they are a bit snug). In that dish spoon over 3/4 cup of your choice marinara sauce (today I’m using a spicy one). On top of your marinara sauce sprinkle onto each ball a little mozzarella cheese. Top them with whatever else you want and throw them back into the oven on 350F/176C for around 15-20 minutes or until your cheese is melted.

You can eat these parmesan meatballs just like this or pair them with a salad, some pasta, quinoa, rice, vegetables, or anything else really. Actually, you know what? Tell me what you’re gonna pair your balls with below! Since I’m on a low carb diet for the next few weeks I’ll definitely be throwing these balls into my salad or on top of some fresh vegetables!!!

Tip:

  • The leaner the ground beef or turkey you use is, the less fat your recipe will have in it (obviously)!
  • Use a spicy marinara sauce!
