Keto Meatballs

Here is a delicious keto meal great for week nights and keto meal prep.  These  two meat meatballs come in at 1 carb for 3 meatballs.  The recipe is versatile and can be made many ways.  We made an Italian style meatball but you could make this with a Asian flare, or on kabobs.  These also freeze very well.

  • 2 lbs Ground Beef We prefer 80/20
  • 2 lbs Ground Pork *you could also use lamb or another ground meat, or just use the ground beef alone
  • 1 tbsp Oregano we recommend fresh
  • 1 tbsp thyme we recommend fresh
  • 1/4 cup purple onion Finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Trader Joes 21 Seasoning Salute Our any all purpose seasoning blend
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream


  • In a large bowl combine your two meats together.  Add your spices and mix well.
  • Add 1 egg, 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese and 1/4 cup of heavy cream and then combine well (your clean hands is the best tool)
  • Begin forming your meatballs, we used a ice cream scoop but your can do these by hand.  Place each meatball In a preheated and greased pan. 
  • Brown/sear your meatball on one side.  Turn when thoroughly browned and a nice seared crust forms.  Do the same on the other side of your meatball.
  • preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  • Once you've seared two sides of your meatballs, remove them from your skillet and place on a foiled lined and sprayed baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 until fully cooked.  
  • Remove from oven and either serve, or add the keto/low carb friendly sauce of your choose.
  • Enjoy!
