  • 1 lb cremini mushrooms (About 20)
  • 1 lb mild Italian sausage
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced

Caprese Meatballs (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

A fantastic low carb meatball recipe inspired by the Caprese Salad.
Yield: 16 meatballs


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella (½ cup of 50% - 70% Reduced fat or Fat Free Cheese = 2oz protein)
  • 2 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil for frying (can substitute Pam spray for less fat. 1 tsp of oil = 5g fat and 45 calories)


  1. Combine all ingredients except the olive oil in a medium bowl, and mix thoroughly. Form into 16 meatballs. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick saute pan. Add the meatballs to the hot oil about 1 inch apart (you may have to do two batches) and cook over low/medium heat for about 3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Because the cheese melts out a bit, be careful that they don’t burn – if they appear to be getting dark quickly, then turn down the heat and cook them at a lower temp. Serve alone, with marinara sauce, or on skewers with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and cherry tomatoes. Enjoy!
