The Keto For Two Cookbook
- 1 large zucchini
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup chopped white onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced

- 1 tablespoon grass-fed salted butter

1Preheat oven to 375°F.
2Cut zucchini into long strips using a vegetable slicer or a spiralizer. Set aside onto a paper towel and allow to sweat.
3In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil. Add onions and garlic and sauté until transparent, 3–4 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.
4In a large mixing bowl, put egg, cheese, salt, pepper, beef, and pork. Add onion and garlic mixture and mix until evenly incorporated.
5Shape meat mixture into six meatballs. Place meatballs on a baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
6In a large skillet over medium heat, heat butter. Add zucchini noodles and sauté, stirring frequently, until softened but still firm, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
