Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Swedish Meatballs (IF*)

** Recipe included in my new low carb, gluten free cookbook, Low Carbing Among Friends. Please check it out at our website @ **

In partnership with FaveDiets ( ) recipe site, I continue my series of Super Bowl party recipes. This recipe is also in honor of Scandinavian viewers, especially one from Sweden. I asked what a meal she would like low carb, and she replied “Swedish Meatballs.” I was happy to comply with her request.

This recipe originally came from Alton Brown of Good Eats fame. I had to change a few things from the original, specifically the binder and gravy recipes. I converted it to a pretty good low carb recipe, and even the reported nutrition information at 3.8h net carbs might even be a bit high. One might ask why I used the stand mixer to mix the meat mixture together where others I used my hands or my daughters’ hands, but with this recipe, I wanted to hold the meatballs together. For that they needed to be mixed really well.

Here are the stats for the last month of my viewers to my channel page on Youtube:
1. United States 1,749
2. Canada 203
3. United Kingdom 135
**4. Sweden 61**
