Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion finely diced
  • 6 Garlic Clove minced
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • Pinch Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • 1/2 Pound Italian Sausage casings removed. We prefer sweet here.
  • 2 Large Eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef 80/20
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Keto Spaghetti Sauce or 1 - 32 oz jar of no sugar added spaghetti sauce.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 475 F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Heat olive oil (2 tablespoons) in a large pan over medium-high heat until shimmering.
  • Add onions (1 finely diced) and cook until soft, 12 minutes.
  • Add minced garlic (6 cloves), dried oregano (1/2 tablespoon), and crushed pepper flakes (a pinch) and cook until garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Place onions/garlic mixture in a large bowl. Add grated parmesan cheese (1 cup) and incorporate it with your hands. Add Italian sausage (1/2 Pound), eggs (2 large lightly beaten), ground beef (2 1/2 Pounds), and salt (1 1/2 teaspoon), and knead until ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Form mixture into 40 - 2 1/2" inch meatballs. Place meatballs on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat pasta sauce (1 - 32 Oz jar) in a large pan (use the same pan you used to cook the onions). Once meatballs are done baking, add them to the pasta sauce and continue to cook for 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm over your favorite low carb noodles, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Nutritional information is based on 1 serving if you make 40 meatballs, which would be 4 meatballs per serving:
