Sara Louise’s Italian Meatballs
- 1 pound Ground beef
- ½ teaspoon Onion powder
- 1 teaspoon Granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon Black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons Flaxseed meal
- 1 Large egg
- ¼ cup Mozzarella cheese shredded
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
- Put the first eight meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix them thoroughly. Next up add the rest of the keto meatball ingredients and continue to mix everything until thoroughly blended together.
- Preheat your kitchen oven to 400 degrees. Start to shape your keto Italian meatballs (using a spoon to scoop each one can help keep the size and shape consistent). Roll each meatball in your hands to keep the size and shape the same for each. Then place each meatball on a lightly greased sheet pan. You should end up with 12-16 delicious Italian style meatballs.
- Put the tray holding the meatballs in the oven and bake them for about 18-20 minutes until properly cooked all the way through.
- Dish up and serve the romantic meatballs to your loved one, enjoy!
