I tweaked my regular ground beef meatballs with bread crumbs to make them low carb! These were literally the best meatballs I have every made!!! this batch made 24 meatballs...I found egg beaters at Aldie's fit and active that have less then 1 carb per egg, which others have had 1-2 carbs depending on brand!

Ingredients

19 oz
lite and fit ground turkey or any brand
1/2 c
egg beaters or 2 large eggs
3 oz
bag of pork rinds
1 tsp
onion poweder
2 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
italian seasoning
1 tsp
oregano seasoning
2 tsp
parsley flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
crush your pork rinds until they look like bread crumbs.
2
mix all ingredients together until well blended
3
roll into meatballs - depending on size I got 23 out of my 19 oz pack of ground meat!
4
brown meatballs in oil.
5
pat off excess oil on meatballs add to your sauce. cook for another 30 minutes or so...if you are not adding to sauce, I cook with lid on meatballs to steam them with a little of low sodium chicken broth for about 20 minutes depending on how well you brown them!
6
I usually make homemade tomato sauce but the carbs are to high when I figured it out. so I found a jar of sauce at the store that has 5 carbs per 1/2 cup. I added garlic powder, black pepper, 3 tablespoons of parm. cheese from can and 1 packet of splenda to make it taste better and it was really really good! I only used about 1/4 cup or so with my meatballs.
