Happy Friday guys, today’s keto dish is inspired by none other than the delectable Big Mac! Since we’re not eating the bun on keto or McDonald’s for that matter, I thought why not have my burger in another form…..Keto ‘Big Mac’ Meatballs 😵😵😵

I LOVE  a good burger but for me on keto, the ‘burger’ just reminds me of what I’m missing. I’m also not the biggest fan of the instant bread baps or any of the other keto burger bap variations, so instead I have my little burgers in meatball form! This recipe makes 16 meatballs and with the sauce they come in at 1g carbs each. They are also incredibly filling 👍

The ‘Big Mac’ angle comes comes from the sauce. So the meatballs are basically stuffed with cheese and then dipped in the sauce. Serve them on a bed of lettuce with some onions and pickles and you have yourself a little party (or some keto big mac meatballs) 🙃

The Sauce

  • Mayonnaise
  • Dill Pickle Relish
  • Paprika
  • Yellow Mustard
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder

Mix everything together in a bowl and slather over the little juicy critters!
