Welcome to #Whatscookinwednesday and this Easy Keto Swedish Meatballs Recipe.  Meatballs are one of those meals that can be incorporated into a ton of different types of other meals.  They can be eaten as a side dish, appetizer, or main course. And I can’t think of anything better today than a plate of Swedish meatballs with some delicious cauliflower.  I am not helping out with the cauliflower recipe but I will make sure you have this delicious meatball recipe.

The Groceries

  • 453.59 g ground pork
  • 453.59 g ground chuck
  • 124 g zucchini grated (or 1 med zucchini)
  • 1 egg
  • 4.93 g all-purpose seasoning (I used McCormick and Garlic and Herb)
  • 1.23 g salt
  • 29.57 g butter
  • 235 ml chicken broth
  • 14.79 g mustard
  • 178.5 ml heavy cream

The Execution

  1. Crumble ground meat into a large bowl

  2. Using a medium grater, shred zucchini until you have about 1 packed cup full (don’t dry or remove water)

  3. Add grated zucchini to the bowl along with egg, seasoning, and salt

  4. Mix with hands until just combined

  5. Melt butter in a large heavy bottomed or cast iron skillet

  6. Roll meat into 18 equal sized balls and place in skillet

  7. Cook for about 3-5 minutes then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes until lightly browned

  8. Whisk together broth, mustard, and cream

  9. Pour into skillet with meatballs and bring to a hard simmer for 5-10 minutes until meatballs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly

Recipe Notes:

  1. Use an ice cream scooper to make measuring out equal sized meatballs easy and so that meatballs will cook evenly
  2. Only mix meat until everything is just combined. Overworking the meat will cause your meatballs to become tough
