Low Carb Sausage, Beef, & Cheese Snackers

Low Carb Sausage, Beef, & Cheese Snackers www.sleevers.wordpress.com

 

Sometimes it’s nice to have a simple, high protein snack at hand without too much effort. I made these when I made the low carb lasagna (also posted on this site) and had half a lb of ground beef left over. They turned out to have a few too many calories so I think I’ll save them for days when I’m not that hungry. They’d also work with chicken or turkey sausage to reduce calories.

Makes 4 servings, 4 meat balls each

Ingredients

    • 1/2 lb bulk italian sausage 
    • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
    • 1/2 tsp onion powder 
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Method

    1. Mix all the ingredients together gently
    2. Form into about 16  balls and place on a foil-lined baking pan
    3. Bake at 375°F for about 25 minutes.
    4. Once they are cool, they can be sorted into individual zip bags and frozen

      Sorry I should have specified. One serving is 4 meatballs. I will go back and add that to the post
