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!

Wow! Delicious, I used what I had which was 16 oz ground beef and 16 oz spicy sausage. It made 16 big meatballs, I used my large cookie scoop. I put 4 on my plate and sadly was full after 2. I made it with spaghetti squash, Alfredo sauce, and a small size salad. I have a feeling I will be making these often. Keto is delicious.

Hi are the cheese strings mozzarella? What type of cheese is it? I live in Australia so we dont have the cheese strings here. Also can I pre make them and freeze them to use at a latter date and should I cook them before freezing them?

Yes they are mozzarella - but I'm sure you could use any soft cheese that melts well!

Made these today for lunches during the week. USE A CASSEROLE DISH! I used a flat edgeless baking sheet and my meatballs leaked haha. Needless to say I now have a nice cheesey layer in the bottom of my oven. But they were fantastic anyway. I also made mine way to big. I know....is there such a thing as a meatball thats too big? One the bright side, one was a good and satisfying size. Thanks for this recipe :)
