Ingredients

  • 1 batch keto dinner rolls
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tablespoon garlic salt
  • ½ tablespoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes with basil
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 slices mozzarella cheese

Garlic Basil Butter:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

Make a batch of keto dinner rolls according to this recipe except make them larger into 12 rolls, not 24. Let cool then remove the rolls in one large piece from the skillet, carefully slice the rolls in half.

In a large bowl combine the beef, egg, garlic salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Mix until well combined then form into 24 meatballs.

Heat the olive oil in the skillet then fry each meatball for 1-2 minutes per side until browned. Pour in the crushed tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer the meatballs and the sauce to a bowl and set aside.

Wipe out the skillet then add the bottom of the rolls back to the skillet. Top the bottom layer with the meatballs and sauce then top with the sliced cheese and the tops of the rolls.

In a small bowl mix together the garlic butter ingredients. Brush the garlic butter over the tops of the rolls.

Transfer to the oven and bake at 400° F. for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melty. Cover with foil if the tops of the rolls start to brown too quickly.
