This is keto meatball meal is one the whole family will love.  I believe these keto meatballs will very quickly  become everyones favourite recipe!

I had low expectations when I was testing these keto meatballs as I wanted to keep it on a low budget, and cut out several ingredients I would have liked to have added, but even with very little ingredients big flavours can be developed.

  1. This one is definitely on the rotation list – a huge winner for the whole family – even my daughter that hates lamb said how good it was

  2. These are amazing! The whole family loved this one so much I’ll have to double the recipe next time! Just delicious and the sauce is a keeper!

  3. Made these using turkey mince since there was no lamb mince at the shop and I had no opportunity to get to the butcher. Then I baked the meatballs in the oven for 20 minutes @ 200. They turned out really well 🙂
