What is the Ketogenic Diet Exactly?

The ketogenic diet goes way back to 1924. It was introduced by Dr. Russell Wilder at the Mayo Clinic. A keto or ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet. It provides health benefits such as weight loss. I am not a doctor, so it’s always a good idea to consult with your physician before starting a Ketogenic diet. This book may help in your research.

Ingredients

Meatball Ingredients: 

1 pound of lean ground beef 

1/2 pound of lean pork (you can also use ground turkey or chicken if you prefer) 

1/2 C. shredded Parmesan cheese

2 tsp. minced garlic

1 egg

1 tsp. dried Oregano

salt & pepper 
1 medium spaghetti squash (optional) 

Homemade Marinara Sauce: 

 

24 oz can of tomato puree 

2 tsp. minced garlic

2 tsp. minced onion 

2 tsp. dried Oregano

2 tsp. dried parsley 

How To Make Keto Meatballs

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Next, you will combine the ground beef, pork, shredded Parmesan cheese, 2 tsp. minced garlic, egg, oregano and salt & pepper. I used my hands to get everything mixed really well.

3. Roll the meat mixture into 2″ meatballs and place on a baking sheet or baking dish. (At this point in time I actually freeze 1/2 of the meatballs on a separate baking sheet and then place in a large freezer bag and put back into the freezer)

4. Place the meatballs in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.

5. While the meatballs are baking, combine the tomato puree, minced garlic, minced onion, dried Oregano and parsley in a medium saucepan.

6. Heat through and let simmer while the meatballs are cooking.

7. Finally, once the meatballs have finished baking, serve with the homemade marinara sauce and garnish with fresh shredded Parmesan cheese.

Keto Low Carb Meatballs

*If serving with spaghetti squash, cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Fill an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish with 1-2″ of water. Place the spaghetti squash rounded side down in the baking dish and heat in the microwave for 15-20 minutes. Remove and let cool a few minutes and then gently scrape the squash from the shell. Serve with meatballs if you wish.

*Makes approximately 2 dozen 2-3″ meatballs.

    I cooked the meatballs for 27 minutes and they came out very over cooked. I may have made them slightly too small but they were at least 6-8 minutes over cooked. Next time I will cook them for 20 minutes.

      Hi Emily, Thank you for sharing. Size does make a difference, but it could all depend on the type of meat you used as well.
