Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Italian Sausage
  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 3/4 cup diced up pepperoni
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (for serving)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together the almond flour with Italian seasoning and sea salt.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the sausage, turkey, pepperoni, almond flour combo, egg, and parmesan cheese (if using). Using your hands, mix well so everything is well incorporated.

  4. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form the mixture into 2 inch round balls. Place on the baking sheet (they can be very close together so the meatballs all fit).

  5. Transfer to the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on top.

  6. Serve hot with marinara sauce for dipping.

Recipe Notes

*You can also use nut crumbs (Italian flavor) in place of the almond flour mixture.
