i have made meatloaf like this before using raw chopped veggies and my family by far likes it better with them lightly cooked first but it depends on how your family likes it.
the only carbs are in the sauce you chose to use.
also very good without sauce.
this is very filling.
hope you enjoy.

How to Make low carb meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. chop and saute veggies of your choice. the smaller the better. you can use raw but i have found that people complain that it is too crunchy if you don't. let cool
  2. cut up cheese sticks into about 5 pieces each
  3. preheat oven to 350
  4. mix ground beef, bacon bits, veggies, eggs and mustard together until well combined.
  5. take some of the meat mixture and a piece of cheese. wrap meat around cheese into about golf ball sized balls
  6. place into pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray
  7. when you have used all the meat mixture bake until almost done. about 30-40 min
    makes about 30 good sized meatballs
  8. remove from oven and cool slightly
    then drain off grease
  9. add your favorite sauce (i just use spaghetti)
    top with parm or other shredded cheese
  10. return to oven until heated through and ready to serve
