3 Ingredient Keto Crock Pot Meatballs; Gluten Free, Low Carb, Simple and Delicious!
These 3 Ingredient Keto Crock Pot Meatballs will make mealtime so quick and easy. Just add a side and you are set!
I just love that they are ready to eat when we walk in the door at dinnertime!
They take just a few minutes in the morning to assemble. They can also be made ahead and frozen!
At .1 carb per meatball, they are a great choice for a Keto or Low Carb diet.
The ground beef:
My meat came in a 2.25 pound package. I have no idea why they do that but that is what they had. (Edit; I recently had 2 kind readers point out that 2.25 pounds is 1 kg so that is why, I guess. It isn’t labeled as a kg; it is labeled as 36 oz and 2.25 lbs; still strange if you ask me. It seems like if it is a kg, it would be labeled as such. Anyway!)
If you use two 1 pound packages, that is fine too. The cheese and egg measurements will still work just fine.
I don’t bother with seasonings but if you want to add salt and pepper or a steak seasoning to add more flavor, feel free. We always eat them with something else so have not felt it was necessary.
I usually use the 93% meat and 7% fat (93/7) when I buy ground beef. Especially in this recipe when the grease will just sit in the bottom of the crock pot, I don’t want extra fat in it.
I can almost always find it marked down so it is not much more expensive than the fattier meat. I just throw the extra grease away anyway so don’t want to pay for it.
That is just me though; use whatever you like! 🙂
What to eat them with:
It is pictured here with Creamy Spinach Cheese Bake and made a delicious dinner and leftovers for lunch for a few days.
They are also delicious cold for lunch dipped in sugar free ketchup or Ranch dressing.
Yield; 24 meatballs
