Low Carb Turkey Meatballs

Holly Miller


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!

Stove Top


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

crush your pork rinds until they look like bread crumbs.
mix all ingredients together until well blended
roll into meatballs - depending on size I got 23 out of my 19 oz pack of ground meat!
brown meatballs in oil.
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!
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.
