1 lb ground pork
1 lb ground beef (80/20 recommended)
1/2 cup crushed pork rinds
1 packet Kinder’s Garlic & Herb Seasoning & Wet Rub
5 large basil leaves
12oz log fresh mozzarella (unsliced)
2 cups of your favorite low-carb marinara
In a large mixing bowl combine beef, pork, eggs, pork crumbs and seasoning until well blended.
Shape into 20 meatballs roughly the size of a golf ball, or enough to cover the bottom of a 9×12 baking dish (or similar size).
Arrange meatballs in single layer, and top with 2 cups marinara. May require less, just make sure meatballs are covered.
Cut thin slices of the fresh mozzarella and place on top of each meatball.
Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until cheese is melted and internal temp of the meatballs registers 150 degrees.
While meatballs bake, julienne the basil leaves and use to garnish the top of the dish once out of the oven.
Serve with deep spoon to capture enough sauce with every meatball, about four per serving. Enjoy!
