Ingredients

  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese cut into 16 dice sized cubes
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef we used 93% lean, but use higher fat ratio for keto such as 80/20
  • 1/2 cup Finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tbs italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • Pepper to taste

For Serving (optional)

  • zoodles 4 cups

  • Marinara Sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Add all ingredients for meatballs, except mozzarella, to a bowl, and mix well to combine.
  • Scoop a couple tablespoons of the meatball mixture, and flatten in your hand. Add a cube of mozzarella to the center, and then press the meat around the cheese until it’s completely covered.
  • Roll the meatball to a round shape, and then place on a lined baking tray
  • Repeat until all the meatball mixture is gone. We made 16 large meatballs with this recipe.

  • Serve on zoodles with marinara sauce.
