Italian Stuffed Meatballs

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

A simple meatball recipe that both tastes delicious and takes less than 30 minutes to make is something that must be a staple in your household. Whether you’re just too tired to spend much time on dinner, or want something quick and easy that will please all – you’ve just stumbled upon your next big hit.

If you’re not a fan of olives, I’d still say to give these a try. I never used to like them either, but slowly started incorporating them into my diet (since they’re such a great source of fats), and grew to really love the little round fruit. You’ll notice a pretty significant amount of runoff fat when you cook the meatballs, but there’s no worry! Simply drizzle the extra fats over some spinach, served under the meatballs, and have a delicious warm salad to accompany your meal.

Be careful not to add too much extra salt as the olives bring a delicious punch of saltiness and flavor. In fact, the olive really stands out in this dish – giving extra flavor, saltiness, and texture. Since you don’t always get an olive with each bite, it’s the perfect way to add different flavors as you’re eating this.
