Keto Holiday Turkey Meatballs with Oven-roasted Brussel Sprouts

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

These juicy, and simple to make, meatballs with a hint of allspice and cinnamon pairs perfectly with the roasted Brussels sprouts and crunchy pecan nuts. Serve them with a generous dollop of the luscious mustard mayo, and we're sure you'll be hitting that favorite button.


    Roasted brussels sprouts

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F (185°C).

  2. Spread the Brussels sprouts, red onion, and pecan nuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  3. Sprinkle with seasoning and drizzle with olive oil and toss until evenly coated. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the Brussels sprouts are tender and a bit golden.

  4. Meatballs

  5. Heat up a large frying pan with half of the butter on medium-high heat. When hot, add the chopped onion. Fry until soft.

  6. In a big bowl, mix the ground turkey with the fried onion, egg, and spices.

  7. Form the meat mixture into balls, about 1" (3 cm) each. It helps to keep your hands damp while forming the balls.

  8. Add the rest of the butter to the hot frying pan. Place the meatballs in the pan in a single layer making sure they don't touch. You might need to fry them in batches depending on the size of the pan. Fry until browned on all sides. Keep warm.

  9. Mustard mayo

  10. Mix the mayo and mustard in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  11. Serve the meatballs with the drippings from the pan, roasted Brussels sprouts, and a dollop of mustard mayo.


You could also fry some sliced strips of bacon until crispy to add some extra flavor, salt, and fat to this dish.

To make the meatballs even juicier you can add some mayonnaise (about 2 tbsp) or bacon fat into the meat mixture. It will be a bit more challenging to make them completely round but they sure will taste fantastic.

How to bake meatballs in the oven

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving space between the meatballs.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned and juices run clear.
