Keto Jumbo Spinach and Kale Stuffed Meatballs

12 ratings

If dinner time has arrived, and you haven’t eaten your greens for the day, you should cook this meatball recipe that’s stuffed with chopped spinach and kale! These leafy greens are very dense in nutrition while staying low in carbs. They’re some of the best vegetables you can eat while on the Keto diet, in fact! A sprinkle of parmesan cheese makes the filling in the meatballs even more appetizing!

    These tasted great but they were very dry. I’d suggest cooking them at a slightly lower temp and for no more then 30 to 35 minutes.

                I may be missing something, but why two amounts of spinach ? Add the second one? What do you plan for the 1/2 cup?

                  I think the meatballs have half of the spinach in the meat. The filling has the other half of spinach in it.

                  First lot of spinach goes in the meat mixture. It was easy to miss this instruction.

                Made these for our family last night. They were a hit! They are huge, so we have leftovers. The stuffing keeps the meatballs moist. We will make these again.

                  I’m going to try these. I think one meatball would be enough for me but if it helps me eat kale I’m going to try it. I really hate kale.

                    I'm a kale weirdo and love it but I understand that lots don't. I put a 1/2 cup of fresh chopped kale in my smoothie every morning so I get a little more without even knowing I'm eating it. You have to blend for a long while though to break it down so you're not getting chunks. Enjoy!

                    @baduncan7bff have you ever tried Kale soup? It’ll definitely make you start to love kale!

                  I am really confused on reading this - 1lb meat for 2 servings means each portion is 2 4oz patties/meatballs?

                    Raw weight is different than cooked weight...

                    I think so ... it looks like the serving weight is 7.1 ounces. I'm just starting out, it is crazy but I already feel better.
