Good Ol’ Mozza Meatballs [Keto + Gluten-free]

Good Ol’ Mozzarella Meatballs, a historic classic. Meatball recipes have been passed down in secrecy through generations. The secret to what makes the best meatballs is a point of argument for some, however, we promise that these balls are sure to leave you so satisfied you’ll be making this new recipe a secret of your own.

The basics of making meatballs are pretty simple, you need about a pound of meat, an egg, some spices, and that’s it! It’s not complicated, but what you spice it with will makes all the difference. Start with mixing in a bowel the ground meat and an egg, then add the spices (see recipe), and mix together.

Next, you’ll want to hand-form the meat mixture into balls (remember to olive oil your hands before rolling). Simply grab handfuls of meat and roll them in your hands into a ball shape (These can be weighted or eyeballed). Place them on a baking sheet and pop in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 mins. We recommend rolling the balls halfway through the cooking time to ensure an even cook.

Pull the meatballs out of the oven once they are done and immediately place thinly sliced mozzarella slices on top. Allow the mozzarella to melt onto the meatballs, creating a gooey sauce!

Serve & Enjoy!
