Keto Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
We love our Keto Cheese Stuffed Meatballs and we love them served in a red sauce too! These keto meatballs are fairly easy to make. The kids even enjoy helping to stuff the Mozzarella cheese inside the meatballs. I always enjoy it when the kids help me cook in the kitchen.
I made these specific meatballs with ground turkey but you can also make them with ground beef or even pork sausage. I've been known to add half ground beef and half sausage just to change up the flavors of meat too. It doesn't matter which meats you prefer to use because the seasonings in this recipe make them all taste amazing. The cook time tends to be the same for each different type of meat too.
Do you know the difference between Italian Meatballs like this versus Swedish Meatballs? The difference is basically the sauce it's served in. Italian meatballs are always served in a red sauce just like in this recipe but Swedish meatballs are served in more of a creamy brown or white gravy. Both are amazingly delicious.
You could add a side of spiral zucchini noodles to this recipe too! Or add a layer of cauliflower mash! Doesn't that sound amazing!
If you like this recipe, you might also enjoy the Keto Friendly Avocado Beef Bombs recipe we tried the other day too. It's pretty amazing! It's coated with a sugar free bbq sauce that puts that recipe over the top!
