Meatballs are a classic family favorite – and it doesn't take much to make them low carb. A typical recipe would include breadcrumbs, but there are several alternatives you can use:
- Grated parmesan
- Crushed pork rinds (I love these seasoned ones from Pork King Good)
- Low carb breadcrumbs (you can make your own from low carb bread or buy them ready processed from LC Foods!
Traditional meatballs are usually made from ground pork, beef, or a mixture, but in this collection of recipes I really wanted to highlight all the different meats that you could use. How about ground chicken, lamb, or turkey? And there are so many flavor variations, too!
You can serve meatballs as a main meal, together with some keto noodles or veggies, but they also work well as an appetizer or on a party buffet table. Just provide some toothpicks and napkins and let your guests dig in!
So let's check them out!
