This easy and flavorful keto meatballs recipe uses ingredients you may already have on hand, like almond flour and Parmesan cheese. It’s a really simple crowd-pleasing idea that can be used in so many dishes, including on top of zoodles, with spaghetti squash, and in soup.

We doubled this Keto Meatballs recipe to feed our group on the Hip2Save/Hip2Keto team retreat previously, and it made for such a delicious meal idea to feed a crowd.

Collin loves using a muffin pan when making these keto meatballs – so smart!

I’ve got to share my absolute favorite kitchen tool when making these meatballs – a potato masher! This masher gets the ground beef and other ingredients mixed together so well, without having to use your hands. 🙌

Feel free to improvise the recipe and season them as desired.

Melting the cheese and sauce on the meatballs before serving makes them over-the-top delicious!

Serve the meatballs with baked spaghetti squash (and sprinkled with lots of Pecorino Romano cheese!) alongside a fresh salad for an easy dinner idea!

    Hi! This was the first keto recipe I’ve made, and it was so easy and delicious. I did have a question, though…under the nutritional information, it says that serving size is 5 meatballs, but the recipe says it makes 15 meatballs and 5 servings. So is the serving size 3 meatballs and not 5? I just wanted to confirm so I’m tracking everything in MFP correctly. Thank you!

      Thanks for catching that! The serving size is 3 meatballs and we will get that updated!

    If I substitute ground turkey for ground beef how does this change the nutritional information

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! With a quick search it looks like 1lb of ground turkey has 680 calories, 38 grams of fat & 0 carbs.
      By comparison it looks like 1lb of ground beef (depending on the % fat you might purchase) has 1148 calories, 92 grams of fat & 0 carbs.
      Hoping this is helpful!
