The Guilt Free, Skinny, Low Carb Parmesan Meatball Recipe

Eating low carb doesn’t mean you can’t have tasty, Italian dishes. Cook up some amazing Parmesan Meatballs and enjoy them guilt free, and still be able to fit in that tiny bikini by Summer.  You don’t need bread crumbs. You won’t even notice they are missing. This is such an easy, quick recipe! Even after working a late day you will be eating in just minutes. Here’s what you need:

2 lbs. ground beef

1 egg

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon ground pepper

1 tablespoon oregano

1 to 2 tablespoons butter for pan browning the meatballs

In a glass bowl, mix the beef, raw egg, cheese, pepper, and oregano together with your hands. Make up the meatballs just a bit larger than the size of a large walnut. Heat the butter in a skillet and cook until meatballs are browned throughout. Top with a spoonful of low carb tomato sauce. Sprinkle with a little Parmesan cheese for show. Enjoy the compliments.


  1. Indeed you don’t need any breadcrumbs, and I’m glad we don’t live super close to my inlaws…there would be war! Breadsticks, bread, pasta, pizza, more bread…I know it’s hard for my husband since he was raised eating that way (especially the bread part, geez, he’s like lost without it), but when we visit the inlaws I make it a point to say that we want to eat light – more veggies and no heavy pasta, fresh fruit for dessert – and my m-i-l is slowly coming around. Two hard-headed women because I refuse to be told how to eat. Ha!
