Ketogenic & Gluten Free Meatballs

With Chimichurri ?

These ketogenic & gluten free meatballs are a breeze to make, and a delicious meal for summer. If you know Argentinian chimichurri at all, you will know that it is fresh, tangy, and scrumptious-to-boot. An ideal pairing to any meat dish.

We also like to bake them: fuzz-free ‘n mess-free. Though if you prefer to cook them, just fry them over medium heat until golden all over (6-8 minutes).

Ketogenic or Gluten Free

If you are not ketogenic, go ahead and use gluten free bread crumbs to fluff them up a tad. Panko-style rock.

But if you are ketogenic, go ahead and up your Parmesan by 3 tablespoons. They come out a little denser, but trust us: none the tastier.

Scrumptious either way.

Oh, and don’t forget to make your ground beef at home (a must really).
