A low carb version of the family favorite spaghetti and meatballs!


  • 1pound ground beef (I used 93% lean, and you could use chicken or turkey if you prefer.)
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced (I use my microplace, and grate over the bowl!)
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 large egg
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine all items in large bowl, careful not to over mix.
  2. Over medium high heat, brown a small meatball to check seasonings.
  3. Once meatballs are seasoned to your liking, scoop meatballs with a small cookie scoop.
  4. Cook over medium high heat until browned on all sides. Do this in batches, not crowding the pan; you want crispy, brown meatballs! Not steamed meatballs…. Yuck. ((There is no need to cook these all the way through — they will cook in the sauce and oven later.))


  • Double or triple the recipe and freeze once meatballs are cooled! I like to flash freeze on a sheet pan, then add the frozen meatballs to a plastic bag.
