Low Carb Meatballs
Mom recently started investigating a low carb diet. She’s asked me to come up with low carb ideas. I know it’s tough to cut out potato, rice, pasta, breads and beans. That’s a lot to deal with, isn’t it?
Even though there are many meal plans available for low carb, we have to come up with ideas that she will eat without getting bored.
Meatballs are great on a low carb diet!
- Eat them plain, like a little snack.
- Smother them in a fresh tomato sauce, as shown.
- Break them up and put them in a corn tortilla with lettuce, tomato and cheese.
You can even serve them with low carb pasta! I was able to find a nice list of low carb pastas at MyDomaine.

Making baked low carb meatballs turns out to be so easy. There are fewer ingredients than traditional meatalls, which means that you’ll be finished and ready to eat much more quickly.
The thing that really makes these low carb meatballs delicious is the combination of ground beef and Italian sausage. The Italian sausage really packs in a lot of delicious taste. Mom isn’t going to get bored with these tasty treats!
This recipe makes 22-24 meatballs. You may want to freeze half of them, if you have only one person eating them. They last in the refrigerator about 3-5 days or frozen about 4-5 months.
