Keto Jumbo Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

21 ratings

Mama Mia! Jumbo stuffed meatballs are an appetizing way to top off your meal. They’re filling, flavorful, and these meatballs happen to be packed with ooey, gooey, mozzarella cheese. Add these meatballs to a plate of zoodles, on top of a salad, or enjoy as is!

    Only ate 1 due to number of calories. Was good. Would eat again.

      NOT appropriate for someone with Bariatric surgery. Try cutting a mozzarella stick in 1/5 portions, using recipe ingredients to surround each piece of mozzarella and bake, should make a lot more meatballs, be easier than stuffing meat with shredded, and be more suited to smaller portions. Even low carb, over-eating (today's larger portions) will set back weight-loss dramatically.

        The fact that you had surgery has nothing to do with this awesome recipe. No reason for you to give it a bad review Karen.

        You should know just from looking what you need to do to make this suitable for you. Maybe you need to not look at keto friendly recipes since we tend to eat larger portions of allowed foods. Namaste❣️

        Make them smaller, eat less of them, or just don't make them.

        This is kind of a mean comment. I appreciate the recipe and may try it.

        You were given nutritional values,makes it simple to figure out. How much/many you eat is on you. Adjust it to your dietary macros.

        Finally, something my teenagers loved. I'll be adding this to the list of easy quick dinners. I had mine with Rao marinara and cauliflower rice. 😋

          Absolutely delicious! I did not have Italian seasoning so I used basil, rosemary, and garlic blend seasoning. I covered it with Trader Joe's turkey bolognese sauce and served over homemade zucchini noodles.

                I did mine with coconut flour since I didn't have almond flour and it worked alright. :)

              It was good but tasted like it needed something... but I could only eat one. Very filling.

                    Great recipe! I sub'd some stuff though. Instead of two pounds of ground beef, I did 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of ground Boulder Italian sausage. I omitted the paprika and mustard powder, and added garlic powder. I also made 15 smaller meatballs instead of 4 jumbos. I cut up 3 string cheese sticks and stuffed the meatballs that way. After baking, I covered 3 meatballs in 1/3 cup of Monte Bene tomato marinara. 5 net carbs. Yum!

                        Can you double the ground chuck instead of using the ground sirloin?

                          These are a good start. They needed more seasoning. I changed the Italian seasoning to old bay. This helped some.
