This is a basic keto meatball recipe you can easily alter to your taste. Feel free to add in chopped spinach, kale or parsley if you’re interested in making this simply a low carb meatball.  Another option is to add in some grated Parmesan for a salty bite. For extra spice, chili powder would also be a nice option. The possibilities are endless!

Tips For Juicy Keto Turkey Meatballs

Now as you may know, turkey meatballs can tend to be a bit…uh…how do we say….. DRY!! Here are a few tips to ensure your keto meatballs bake up nice and juicy!

  1. Don’t over-mix the meat too much. Dump all the ingredients in the bowl and use your hands to mix them all up gently with your hands. Yeah meatballs love being touched.
  2. Always make a tiny test patty. You want to make sure your meatballs taste amazing before you make up the entire batch. Fry up a small piece and adjust the seasonings if needed.
  3. Add some fat and moisture. Turkey meat is very lean and dries out easily. Adding things like an egg, milk, cream, mayo, grated veggies, olive oil etc. will help it in the juicy department.
  4. Don’t overcook it! This recipe makes small meatballs which means they cook quick. If your oven tends to run a bit hotter or you use a very lean turkey then they will cook ever fast. So just keep an eye on that first batch (if you’re making several) so you’ll know how your oven behaves with this recipe.

That’s it! Go make some delicious keto meatballs sista!

Enjoy!
