Keto Bell Pepper Meatball Subs
My guys LOVE homemade meatballs, meatball sliders, and my Weight Watchers Stuffed Peppers, so I created a combination of the three, with this delicious and easy to prepare Keto Bell Pepper Meatball Subs recipe!
Keto Bell Pepper Meatball Subs Ingredients
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, add meatball ingredients and combine using clean hands.
Form the mixture into 16 meatballs.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a large skillet on medium-high heat.
After the pan is heated through and oil is hot, add all of the meatballs and cook for 10 minutes – turning them every few minutes to ensure equal browning.
Turn the heat down to medium-low and pour the jar of marinara sauce over the meatballs.
Cover and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
Place bell peppers (cut side facing up) on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper.
Place a piece of provolone on four of the pepper halves and place in the oven for 7 or so minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
Remove the peppers from the oven, and add 4 meatballs on top of the cheesy pepper halves.
Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese if desired. Top with another bell pepper half to finish the sub sandwich.
- For the meatballs:
- 1 lb ground beef
- ⅓ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- ¾ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- ½ teaspoon dried parsley
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- For the subs:
- 4 bell peppers stems removed and slice horizontally in half
- 4 slices provolone cheese
