If there is one thing you should know about me (Megha) it’s that meatballs are my favorite food. If meatballs are on the menu, I am always tempted to get, and occasion do, but i can guarantee they always contain breadcrumbs. The beauty of our easy air fryer meatballs is that you can enjoy your meatballs without the unnecessary carbs!
No Carb Meals
More and more of the keto community is experimenting with no carbs or carnivore diet so we’ve had requests to make meals more fitting for that way of eating. These meatballs are a perfect no carb meal along with our:
Any carbs that are listed in the nutrition come from seasonings which are always option. For example, one clove of garlic is one carb and while you can leave it out, a clove or two of garlic will do your tastebuds and gut health some good!
Choose Your Flavor!
For these air fryer meatballs we went a little out of the box with a thai twist. We normally stick to Italian seasoning or keep it simple with some salt, pepper and garlic powder, but that can get a little redundant. The great thing about bulk air frying meatballs is that you can make split up the meat and add different seasonings to each batch to satisfy everyone in the family.
Megha’s Favorite Seasoning: Indian (curry powder, minced onion and cilantro)
Matt’s Favorite Seasoning: Italian (fresh rosemary, thyme, oregano and grated parmesan cheese)
Bulk Prep For The Week
This is the perfect meal prep recipe! Easy to make, easy to store and you can change up the way you use them all week long. Add them to salads, bake them with marinara, fresh cheese and serve over palmini noodles, or just eat them straight up for a quick snack.
Tip: They are best stored in an air tight container in the fridge up to 10 days. You can even freeze them for up to a month and reheat easily in the oven or microwave!
Easy To Serve
These meatballs are not only great for family dinner and meal prep, but they would serve up great as an appetizer at holiday and dinner parties. If you plan to serve them as an appetizer all you have to do is pop a toothpick into each meatballs and serve alongside a couple different sauces.
One of my favorite sauces is our low carb peanut sauce made using peanut butter and you can find it on our food blog along with several other recipes! You can also get a little fancy and turn these meatballs into the main dish. Use this article for some inspiration!
Air Fryer Meatballs For Busy Nights
You can prep your meat before you go to work or even the night before and keep it in a bowl covered in saran wrap until you are ready to make them. All you have to do is preheat your air fryer, form your meatballs, air fry them and devour! Even on the busiest nights you’ll have time to make these for the entire family.
