This Keto Meatballs recipe is an excellent base meatball recipe for many meals. I particularly made these homemade meatballs for the freezer for my Keto Red Pepper Meatballs over Cauliflower Rice recipe. You can also make up a big batch of these homemade meatballs to cook up and freeze for later use in soups and sauces!
Now, are you ready for a Jamerrill cooking confession? When I had my last large family freezer cooking day and made up 20 Healthy Freezer Meals I had a big OPPS in the homemade meatball department.
I knew I baked up several pans full of these homemade Keto meatballs. However, when it came time to take these precooked meatballs and put together my bags of Keto Red Pepper Meatballs, I could only find about two dozen meatballs. For the life of
I looked everywhere, even in the freezer (had I somehow put them there?!) I decided to keep going and make what I could with the meatballs I had. I figured maybe I hadn’t made as many as I thought.
Sigh, fast forward to the next day. I opened my oven to put in a batch of homemade granola bars. And yes, right there looking at me were the other 2+ dozen meatballs!
Because of this BIG OPPS I ended up making one large bag of Red Pepper Meatballs when I had planned to make two. So I guess that goes to show you, always check your oven, too!Print
