Mozzarella-stuffed Turkey Meatballs (Low Carb)






1 lb ground turkey

1/2 cup low carb bread crumbs

2 tbs olive oil

1 jar pasta sauce

Spices to taste (seasoned salt, garlic, basil, onion, ground peppers)

2-3 mozzarella sticks (cut in 1/2 in pieces)

1 egg


Mix turkey, bread crumbs, egg & spices in a large bowl. Form each meatball w/ a single piece of mozzarella as it’s center. In a covered pan, brown meatballs in olive oil. Drain oil, add meatballs to meat sauce & cook til done.

Makes about 18 to 20 medium sized meatballs.

Note: Almond flour can be used to replace breadcrumbs. This also lowers the carb content.

Note: When I double the recipe, I still only use one egg. Makes for a nice firm meatball to me.
