Meatballs Keto-Friendly or AIP-Friendly

Updated: Feb 9, 2021

Instead of using gluten breading in your meatballs substitute some mozzarella cheese (keto). Or use cassava flour for AIP.

Beef-Pork Meatballs Oregano and Nomato Sauce
Keto Friendly Gluten Free Meatballs


Meatball (recipe will use two pans and be about 15 meatballs, I like leftovers so I make a big batch). Cut the recipe in half if you prefer less.

  • 1 pound of ground beef

  • 1 pound of ground lamb

  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella Keto (or AIP replace and add 1/2 cup cassava flours)

  • 1/2 cup of chopped parsley

  • 2 eggs beaten

  • 2 garlic cloves minced

  • 1 teaspoon pepper


Garnish options

1/4 cup of chopped parsley, additional cheese and/or dried red pepper flakes to add spice!


  1. In a large bowl, mix your meatball ingredients and mix with your hands.

  2. Create 1.5-inch meatballs

  3. In a large saute pan heat some olive oil, saute meatballs for about 4 minutes on each side, they will still be half cooked, set aside on a plate with a paper towel to soak up some oil

  4. In the same pan, add garlic, onions, and garlic powder, stir and cook 2-3 minutes, add tomatoes and oregano

  5. Add back the meatballs and simmer for 15 minutes

  6. Serve on a bed of arugula or cauliflower rice or cauliflower pasta

  7. Garnish more chopped parsley, add some more cheese if you like.
