Try It Tuesday Cooking

 

A few days ago, I was lamenting to Huff the Hubs the struggle of hitting my protein goal everyday. “I need more protein but I REALLY don’t want to just eat jerky all day, every day,” I told him. He said, “You just need some meatballs or something to snack on.”

Genius.

But, I knew I couldn’t make traditional meatballs–they’re made with bread crumbs and bread equals carbs. I perused Pinterest and found an awesome slow cooker, Keto meatball recipe!

Here’s what I used:

~1 package ground turkey

~1/2 cup grated, parmesan cheese

~1 egg

~a sprinkle of garlic salt, italian seasoning, onion powder, and Mrs. Dash Table Blend

First, I combined everything in a large bowl and then rolled the mixture into ping pong-sized balls.

I dropped them in my Crockpot and cooked them on high for about 5 hours.

Then, they were done! I served them alongside some mashed cauliflower and also heated up two or three for a snack whenever I was behind on my protein intake!
