    Not a single family party goes by without a crock of keto Swedish meatballs in my family. But it’s not always one person who makes them. You have my cousin G who took the generational torch in making Swedish meatballs at gatherings, but this last Christmas my cousin A made them (she also warned everyone against eating them.)

    Meanwhile, I’ve been hanging on to this ketogenic-friendly Swedish meatball recipe, which I just loooooove. Well, everything except for waiting 20 minutes for the sauce to reduce, which incidentally takes even longer if you’re too lazy to wash a normal skillet and use a small one instead (if you follow me on Instagram, you saw my instastory and know I’m guilty.)

    These keto swedish meatballs are perfect over zoodles, and the sauce alone can be used over just about everything! The recipe makes 24 delectable meatballs.

    This recipe is one of my favorites, and I know you and your whole family will love it!  And by the way, this recipe comes from my cookbook, The Wicked Good Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

    For another great meatball recipe that is perfect for parties, try my Low Carb Party Meatball Ricotta Bites.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and preheat a slow cooker to low.

    2
    Done

    Line a large baking pan with parchment paper.

    3
    Done

    In a large bowl, combine ground meat, cheddar cheese, egg, onion, water, nutmeg and allspice.

    4
    Done

    Roll the mixture into 1.5 inch meatballs and arrange them on the lined baking pan (may require two depending on how large your pan is -- makes about 24 meatballs)

    5
    Done

    Bake for about 20 minutes or until a thermometer reads 140 degrees F.

    6
    Done

    Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat the butter, chicken broth, and heavy cream over medium heat.

    7
    Done

    Once it begins to simmer, reduce the heat to low and let continue simmering for about 20 minutes until it reduces in half (stir frequently, especially toward the end).

    8
    Done

    Stir in the mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

    9
    Done

    Pour the sauce into a slow cooker and add the meatballs when they're ready.

    10
    Done

    Cook on low for about 2 hours so the meatballs can marinate.

    11
    Done

    Stir every half hour or so, covering all the meatballs, and don't cook in the slow cooker longer than two hours, or the sauce may start to separate.

    12
    Done

    That last instruction is key. If you don't mix and cook too long, the cream in the sauce will begin to separate (yep, I cooked it for 4 hours once and it still tasted fine but was much less pleasant to look at after 4 hours! Live and learn!)

    These are my go to keto Swedish meatballs. I literally make them once a week in my meal prep. They are insanely delicious. I use meatloaf mix and prepare them with a zucchini and squash sautée on the side that has tomato, corn and onion as well. Make them!!

    Sometimes grocery stores and butchers will grind up a mix of different ground meats and call it “meatloaf” blend but you can use ground beef, or a mix of ground meats if they don’t have it.
