Servings: 4 meals
- 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
- gluten free pasta 2 cups
- Marinara Sauce
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.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the meatballs have browned and the cheese has just started oozing out from the meatballs.
Serve on zoodles with marinara sauce.
