  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 stalk celery minced
  • 1/2 onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scoop Creamy Tomato Basil Keto Chow
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 20 oz ground turkey
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese
  • 2 oz parmesan cheese grated


  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly oiled tin foil. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat a skillet and add the olive oil, then add the celery, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables are soft and translucent. Stir in the rosemary and set aside to cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the egg, Keto Chow, basil, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add cooled celery, onion, garlic, and rosemary.
  • Then add the ground turkey and knead it with the egg mixture. Finally add the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and mix well. Allow the mixture to sit about 5 minutes to help hold together.
  • Shape into 15 meatballs, slightly wetting your hands to help keep the mixture from sticking if necessary.
  • Place each meatball on the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until the meatballs are firm and register 160F internal temperature on a meat thermometer.
  • Delicious served with cauliflower mash or zucchini pasta and your favorite sauce.
