Keto Meatballs in Creamy Tomato Sauce

These low carb and keto meatballs were so nice that I had to make a second batch. They were cheesy, creamy and tender. Most of traditional meatballs recipes call for breadcrumbs and we want to avoid bread at all costs. I used an egg as a binding agent in this recipe, but you can also use almond flour in the place of breadcrumbs. These were even good on their own without any side dish. I got over 20 medium sized  meatballs out of this recipe and it was enough to feed my family of five.
