Easy Keto Parmesan Meatballs [Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipe]

Meatballs are a super popular appetizer, so you certainly won’t be disappointed with these low-carb Slow Cooker Parmesan Meatballs. They’re full of flavor, a bit salty and peppery, and perfect for dipping in the creamy and rich marinara sauce. These Italian-style meatballs can also be served with tender spaghetti squash or other vegetables of your choice.

This recipe is extremely easy to make, and you can even get the kids involved in shaping the meatballs. They’re extremely moreish so keep in mind that you should make a double batch of these meatballs if there is a party on your calendar.

Parmesan cheese, among the most widely used cheeses in the world, is sharp, tangy, and one of the best low-carb ingredients to use in your cooking. Said to have originated from Italy’s Parma region, this cheese has been a staple in European kitchens for centuries. It’s high in protein, fat, and rich in important minerals like calcium, and vitamins B6 and B12.

Enjoy this savory low-carb dish on its own, with the zucchini noodles (zoodles) or served with spaghetti squash noodles. Best of all, busy households can still enjoy this meal. Make the meatballs ahead of time and store it in the fridge if it’s going to be eaten the next day, or freeze them for up to a month.

    Hi! Looks like a great recipe! Love the mix of spices. Just so you know though, on the top it does say Zucchini, but in the bottom it says chicken. Probably a silly spell check thing! Thanks!

      Definitely a silly mistake – sorry about that and thanks for pointing it out. Wish we could easily edit YouTube videos after publish 😥

    Love these meatballs! One of my fave recipes! I sometimes go in spurts where I eat a lot of meatballs of all kinds. They’re easy to make, great for making and/or cooking ahead, freeze well, can be used as a quick snack, can be a regular meal over zoodles, etc or in “meatball subs” using a variety of buns/bread substitutes. And there’s plenty of sauce with this recipe! ❤🇮🇹❤🇮🇹❤
