How To Make Keto Meatballs

Go ahead and make a huge batch of these baked keto meatballs.  They are so versatile – you can toss them in keto-friendly marinara sauce and serve over zoodles, you can eat them plain with veggies on the side, you can use them in lettuce wraps, you can add them as a salad protein – whatever floats your boat!

Like all meatballs, these low-carb meatballs freeze perfectly.  Just put cooked meatballs on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet or plate, stick in a freezer for an hour, then put frozen meatballs in a ziploc bag and put it back in a freezer.  This way frozen meatballs are not stuck together, so you can take out as many as you’d like for your meal.  To thaw frozen keto meatballs, either do it in refrigerator overnight or simply use the microwave defrost setting.
