Keto Meatballs 

Ingredients 

1 lb. ground turkey

1 large egg beaten (or 3 egg whites)

Chop up some broccoli and cauliflower to substitute for bread crumbs

2 tablespoons of milk

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1 ½ teaspoons dried basil

 About 12 to 14 oz. of spaghetti sauce from the jar or homemade.  Instead of cooking in the tomato sauce you can simply cook them in a non-stick pan with cooking spray.

Bacon Slices for each meatball

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  

Combine the meat, egg, veggies), milk, Parmesan cheese and basil in a large bowl and mix well. Shape the meat mixture into 15 to 20 small meatballs.  

Place the, meatballs on a baking sheet and cook until lightly browned (10 minutes).  

Meanwhile place the tomato sauce in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.  

Add the browned meatballs to the sauce, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, about 20 minutes.  

Note: You can freeze these for about 2 weeks.
