Keto Pimento Cheese Meatballs

Cheddar cheese, red pimiento peppers, and the secret ingredient of mayonnaise creates a zesty yet creamy and moist keto meatball. It’s perfect not only for a weeknight dinner but also as low-carb snack or taken in a lunchbox for work or school.


Pimiento cheese

  • 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup pimientos or pickled jalapeños
  • 1 tsp paprika powder or chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 oz. cheddar cheese, grated


  • 1½ lbs ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter, for frying


  1. Start by mixing all ingredients for the pimiento cheese in a large bowl.
  2. Add ground beef and the egg to the cheese mixture. Use a wooden spoon or clean hands to combine. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Form large meatballs and fry them in butter or oil in a skillet on medium heat until they are thoroughly cooked.
  4. Serve with a side dish of your choice, a green salad and perhaps a homemade mayonnaise.


This recipe works perfectly for meatloaf, too. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Press the meat mixture into a loaf pan and bake for 30-40 minutes! Meatloaf can also be sliced for sandwiches or luncheon meat.
