How to Make Low Carb Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
To make the meatballs, mix together some ground pork, ground beef (I use about one third pork, two thirds beef), two eggs, grated Parmesan and some seasoning in a large bowl. I like using Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix well!
Chop some cheese strings into small pieces. Take a small handful of the meat mixture and place the cheese in the center.
Then mold the meat around the cheese to form a ball. Place the formed meatballs onto a baking sheet lined with foil. This recipe makes about 24 meatballs.
Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until the meat has cooked thoroughly.
The entire recipe of 24 cheese stuffed meatballs contains under 5g net carbs which converts to about 5-6 servings depending what you're doing with them. You could serve them with a Marinara-style dipping sauce – or even low carb ketchup!
You could also mix them with a low carb tomato pasta sauce and serve with one of these great low carb spaghetti alternatives. But they also work great in a low carb tortilla with a dollop of salsa! Oh, and sometimes I just eat them cold straight out of the fridge. Shhhh don't tell anyone!Delicious #lowcarb #meatballs stuffed with cheese! Click To Tweet
