Low Carb Meatball Casserole Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 85/15 blend)
  • 1 lb spicy pork sausage
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup grated or shredded parmesan
  • 1/2 cup crushed pork rinds (substitute for breading)
  • 2 egg
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning blend
  • Low Carb Red Sauce (Spaghetti or Marinara)
  • 2 Cups Cheese for the top of the casserole
  • Fresh basil for a topping
  • Optional:  Add more veggies to this recipe by including a 1/2 cup of shredded zucchini to the meatball mixture

This recipe makes between 25 and 30 meatballs depending on the size you make them.

 

One thing that we want to mention is the Rao’s Sauce seen here on Amazon is an excellent choice for no sugar added marinara sauce!  This is our number one asked question for this recipe!

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray
  2. Use a food processor to crush the pork rinds.
  3. Combine all the ingredients (except for the red sauce 2 cups cheese and fresh basil that is set aside for the casserole) for the meatballs.  I use my hands to mix all these ingredients.

    I used the whole jar of sauce. It didn’t say how to cover them, example 1 cup, use enough to cover each meatball etc. They smell great!

    So good. I put this in my go to recipes, tried and loved board on Pinterest. Thanks.
    *I have also made the meatballs, put them is a crock pot after cooking and topped it with spaghetti sauce and served them as an appetizer. Love.

    1. She must be wrong it says to use a small scoop..so that would mean the nutrition info would be one meatball..that can’t be right..

  6. The BEST tasting meatballs EVER!!! I’m glad I made a double recipe and froze the extra meatballs. I was able to quickly prepare dinner a few weeks later when we had it again. 3 meatballs are actually filling, especially when you add a side salad.
    Thank you for this amazing recipe!!!

    Have not made this yet but just wanted to comment that my hubby and I just discovered this Rao’s Marinara Spaghetti Sauce, and it is AWESOME!!! It is on the pricey side, but found it a Walmart and saved a little. It is pricey, but the flavor is so, so good and there is NO SUGAR added like all the other sauces! Love, Love, Love this sauce. Will be making this this week for sure.
