Keto Skillet Meatballs Directions
Make meatball mixture
In a large bowl, add ground beef, egg, parmesan cheese, pork panko, garlic, salt, seasoning salt, pepper, oregano and parsley. Mix until combined.
Roll homemade meatballs
Pinch of some ground beef mixture and roll in between the palm on your hands to form a 1 inch ball. Repeat with remaining ground beef mixture.
Add avocado oil or olive oil to a preheated skillet at medium heat. Working in batches, add meatballs to the skillet and cook for a few minutes on all sides until cooked through. Don't add too many meatballs to the skillet or they will steam instead of fry.
Add marinara and cheese
Return all meatballs back to the skillet. Pour in marinara sauce and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover, turn down heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Makes 42 meatballs)
Delicious comfort food! Next time I make this, I’ll use half hot italian sausage (pork) and half beef. I froze half the recipe in individual servings so I can have this tasty dish any time the mood strikes.
Hi! I made these last night and they were a huge hit, even with my non-keto son and husband! I didn’t have the panko, so I substituted hemp hearts, which worked great. I’ve done this before with meatloaf, so I thought it’d be okay. This is definitely going to be a “go to” for me–it was so easy to throw together, the ingredients are usually on hand, and like I said, they loved it! I love your recipes! Thanks for helping me succeed at keto!
