In Honor of National Bacon Day…
We present our loaded, keto cheesy pesto meatballs in bacon!
This recipe was just waiting to happen. Mozzarella and meatballs dipped in marinara sauce sounds heavenly and has been done time and time again. But add in some pesto and you’ve got a completely different flavor- something more earthy and herby. You still have the texture of the melted cheese adding moisture to the meatballs, but with extra flavor and yummy fat from the pesto. Got fresh basil? Good! Our 5 Minute Pesto recipe will get your the best pesto you’ve ever had! Don’t have fresh basil? Growing it is cheap and fun! But a lot of groceries and supermarkets sell fresh herbs as well (not to mention ready to eat pesto!).
Now add crispy, juicy bacon around those meatballs and you’ve got so much flavor packed into one bite! These stuffed meatballs aren’t for the light-hearted. Each one is packed with cheese, fat, meat and more meat! You can easily have 2 meatballs and a side dish and end up full. Our recipe makes 10 stuffed meatballs which can be shared among 2-4 people, depending on their hunger, of course.
