Loved these! Super simple and honestly I wasn't expecting this much flavor but I was pleasantly surprised! I used Rao's marinara sauce and served these over shirataki noodles. Delicious! This is going in my regular rotation! The only thing I would suggest is if you are serving these over shirataki noodles so use a bit more tomato sauce. I will also try these over mashed cauliflower but they'd also be tasty on their own! Read More

The recipe was good but honestly we would have rather just had a hamburger patty which would have been a lot less hassle. The taste was good but the meatballs fell apart. New to the Keto diet so that may play a part but dang regular meatballs are sooooo much better. Read More
