Meatballs are always a good idea….wouldn’t you agree? These Keto Turkey Meatballs are so easy to whip up and are perfect for weekly meal prep or a quick dinner. Not only are these Keto, but they are also Whole30, Paleo and gluten free.
Being able to serve my kiddos and husband a healthy meal that tastes as good as the real thing makes my heart so happy. My 5 year old loves taking these turkey meatballs in her lunch box and I love snacking on them in-between meals. Not to mention, these are perfect for social gatherings, tailgating and Sunday Night Football!
Using ground turkey instead of beef makes these meatballs super lean and the seasoning gives them a ton of flavor. They are also great on salads, over zoodles with marinara or even served with a side of scrambled eggs for breakfast.
How long will these Turkey Meatballs last in the fridge?
If stored in an airtight container, these meatballs will last up to a week. They also freeze great. I will store in a freezer proof container and they will last up to 3 months. Simply thaw, heat up and serve.
What else can you serve with these Turkey Meatballs for a complete meal for kids and adults?
These meatballs are great to eat all by themselves just as a snack, but they also serve a great meal. I love serving mine over a salad for a quick lunch or even on top of spaghetti squash with marinara sauce. Another unique way to use these as a meal is to stuff a few inside a sweet potato and cover with ranch.
In conclusion, these meatballs are really perfect anytime, anywhere. Additionally, if you are looking for something other than ketchup to dip these meatballs in, be sure to check out my 4 Majestic Sauces. All of the sauces pair great with the meatballs, however, my Mac’s Awesome Sauce is my favorite.

This recipe is so easy, flavorful and a family favorite!
Delicious! I made some adjustments for what I had and they were fantastic. Made almond flour in my vitamix using smokehouse almonds from blue Diamond and a can of tomato sauce with oregano, garlic, and basil. Simple, holds together well, and definitely a new favorite. We served them over zoodles with some extra tomato sauce.
Wow. That sounds amazing. Thank you
So easy to make and full of flavor! Paired the meatballs with hearts of palm pasta & marinara!
Omg! I’m usually pretty terrible at cooking but these came out SO good! I just served it over some brown rice and it was delish 😋
Thrilled to hear Alyssa. Thank you for the kind words of support.
