Homemade Meatballs with Pork and Beef – Keto Friendly
Homemade meatballs are perfect on their own, as snacks or appetizers, or to compliment a main dish.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that fried meatballs are amazing, and you’re more than welcome to give these meatballs the skillet treatment by frying them in some oil. The only problem I have with that method is they become flat on the sides that get fried.
To combat the flattening these beautifully round meatballs, I place them in mini muffin tins. Greasing the muffin tin is a must so the meatballs don’t get stuck. It will also help with clean up.
Make sure your meatballs are slightly larger than the muffin cup space, this will allow the meatball to retain it’s shape while you bake them. The space also provides a nice little grease trap for the meatballs. If there is enough grease, it will help to brown the bottoms of the meatballs a little since they won’t be touching the bottom of the muffin tin.
If the ground meat you’re using is on the fattier side, you might want to place your muffin tin on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any potential grease overflow.
