Low Carb Cream Cheese Stuffed Meatballs
These are what dreams are made of. Low carb cream cheese stuffed meatballs. They are quick to make, economical, perfect as a snack, lunch, dinner, breakfast (you know I think leftovers are King!) and can be frozen. So why not make a double, triple batch and be prepared for the weeks ahead.
How about serving them on a platter as an appetiser, on bamboo sticks, or warm them up on the barbecue in summer. They can be served hot or cold, with or without dips. They would go brilliantly with my low carb curry coconut dipping sauce. And as for a quick protein snack, they are portable and sturdy to carry around.Look what I found! An easy recipe for cream cheese stuffed meatballs. Low carb and grain free amazeballs.
You can even adapt the filling to your liking. How about feta and basil? Blue cheese? Haloumi? Chives? Mozzarella and pepperoni? The possibilities are endless. I try to make my recipes as adaptable asp possible. It's about giving you ideas, about thinking differently. Leave a comment with your fabulous idea for a new stuffing combo.
