- Meatball Ingredients:
- * 1 lb ground beef I used 85/15 blend

- Preheat oven to 400. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray
- Use a food processor to crush the pork rinds.
- Combine all the ingredients (except for the red sauce 2 cups cheese and fresh basil that is set aside for the casserole) for the meatballs. I use my hands to mix all these ingredients.
- Use a small cookie scoop and make small meatballs (all the same size)
- Place the meatballs in a casserole dish and bake them for 15 to 20 minutes or until the meatballs are fully cooked.
- Remove them from the oven and drain the grease.
- Top with the low carb red sauce and cheese and put them back in the oven.
