Easy Oven Meatballs


These little meatballs are virtually carb free but full of flavour. Experiment with different flavours by adding a combination of different herbs and spices or even cheese. I found these meatballs cooked better after being chilled for half an hour in the fridge. You can still bake them straight away if you are pressed for time but you may find the egg seems to seep out around each ball. This is not a bad thing as far as flavour is concerned, it just isn’t as pleasing to look at.

They pair nicely with some steamed broccoli and match stick carrots with a little pat or margarine and salt and pepper.

Ideal for a LCHF (low carb, high fat), diabetics and even Weight Watchers.

There are 0.2g carbs, 8.1g protein and 3 Weight Watchers points per serving.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
