What’s easier than a meatball?  A meatball filled with gooey cheese!  The first step is to combine the meatball ingredients in a bowl and form them into your preferred size.  The recipe is outlined with a quantity of 20 meatballs using a common 2-tablespoon scoop.  If you haven’t invested in simple scoops yet, here is your nudge to do so.  I use them for many recipes.  You can find a set of 3 different sizes for less than $20.00 at major stores and, of course, on Amazon.

After forming your meatballs, you’ll want the mixture to firm up enough to accept the cheesy center you’re after while still retaining a classic round shape.

Here’s the good news!  You can make these a day before!  Simply cover the sheet pan with plastic wrap until you’re ready for them.  If you’re in a pinch and plan to make them as you prep them, place them into the freezer for about 15 minutes.

The standard keto diet allows for cheese, so doesn’t it stand to reason that a vegan keto diet may also include “cheese”?  Chao is a favorite over here at Casea Keto.  It’s so good when it’s melted.  If I’m being honest, it’s No Bueno when it’s cold.  But stuffed inside these meatballs?  Well, Chef’s Kiss!

You’ll want to watch the carbs with this product.  Using about 4 slices in total, which is just about half of a pack, cut squares to place in the center of each patty.  You’ll likely have “cheese” leftover bringing the total net carbs per meatball down in numbers slightly.  We’ll leave it up to you to determine how much cheese happiness you need per meatball.

What Can I Eat As A Vegan On Keto

If you’re following a keto diet then you know low-carb is an option.  If you’re vegan and you’ve found your way here, well, now you know that a yummy low-carb option is also available!

Now that your meatballs are stuffed with “cheese”, you can roll them in sesame seeds and pop them back into the freezer for about 10 minutes just until they are set.  The goal is to maintain that ball shape.  You do not want to let them warm in your hands and then bake them straight away.  Doing so may produce more of a patty than a meatball.

All that is left is to bake your little masterpieces and top them with the yummy sauce and garnish.  And, voila – you have a vegan keto diet cheeseburger meatball.

Ingredients

MEATBALLS

  • 16 oz Beyond Meat Beyond Beef
  • 14 oz Impossible Sausage
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 6 T Just Eggs
  • 1/2 t Salt
  • 1/2 t White Pepper
  • 3.5 oz Vegan Cheese or 1/2 of a package of Field Roast Chao Slices (our favorite creamy and melty "cheese")
  • White Sesame Seeds

SAUCE

  • 1/2 C Vegenaise
  • 3 T Sugar-Free French Dressing or substitute with sugar-free ketchup
  • 4 T Sugar-Free Pickles, small dice
  • 1 T White Vinegar
  • 1 t Onion Powder
  • 1/8 t Salt

GARNISH

  • Iceberg Lettuce, shredded
  • Tomato, small dice
  • Sweet Onion, small dice
  • Sugar-Free Pickles, small dice

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, add the beyond beef, impossible sausage, and the Worchestershire sauce through the white pepper and mix well to combine.
  • Using a 2T scooper, or a spoon and your hands, form 20 and place on 2 Silpat or parchment paper-lined sheet pans.
  • Place the sheet pans in the refrigerator to set for about an hour or into the freezer to set for about 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, prepare your cheese. If using the Chao slices, cut half of the entire package into cubes using about 3-4 slices in each cube. Otherwise, prepare cheese cubes to stuff inside your meatballs. We are assuming 4 full slices for nutritional totals.
  • Next, sprinkle sesame seeds onto a small plate.
  • Remove the meatballs when they have set enough to handle without losing their shape. Working quickly, create a well for the cheese cube and form the mixture around it returning to the meatball shape.
  • Roll each cheese-stuffed meatball on the sesame seed-covered plate and return it to the lined sheet pan. We are assuming 1/2 cup for nutritional totals.
  • Bake in a 350-degree oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until the cheese in the center is melted and the meatballs register 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Assemble the sauce while the meatballs cook. In a medium bowl, mix the vegenaise through the salt and place it in the refrigerator to set.
  • Next, dice iceberg lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles keeping each separate allowing you to garnish each meatball as you wish.
  • Let the cooked meatballs rest for a few minutes before adding the sauce and topping each with your garnish. Serve as an appetizer or add atop a salad for a fun and vegan take on the classic cheeseburger.

Notes

We have based this recipe on 20 meatballs.  The net carbs before adding the sauce and garnish are 3.6 per meatball with a calorie total of 128.75.  Using your keto calculator app, you can add the totals for the sauce and garnish and do so to your taste and net carb daily goals.  While this is not an everyday type of meal, it is a delicious treat to enjoy on occasion.  And enjoy you will - THEY ARE DELICIOUS!
