Ingredients

  • low carb sandwich bread
  • low carb mini meatballs with BBQ sauce
  • cheddar cheese
  • mayonnaise

Low Carb Sandwich Bread – My favourite for this panini? This Tomato Basil Flatbread, 100%! You could also try this Cheesy Flatbread, a 90 Second Keto Bread or even an Onion Bun!

Low Carb Mini Meatballs with BBQ SauceThese little savoury balls of heaven are made with ground beef, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, almond flour and an egg. They get formed into little balls and baked with a delicious Low Carb BBQ Sauce!

How to make a Low Carb BBQ Meatball Panini

Reheat (or make) 8 Low Carb Mini Meatballs with BBQ Sauce until the internal temperature reaches 165° and heat a panini grill on high.

Make your low carb sandwich bread; for this recipe I prefer Tomato Basil Low Carb Flatbread. You would get two sandwiches out of one full recipe and cut the bread into quarters.

Spread some mayo on the inside of both top and bottom bread. Layer aged cheddar cheese on the bottom bread, top with the heated meatballs and then the top bread.

Grill on the preheated panini grill until the cheese starts to melt. Enjoy!
