Everything Keto Sausage Balls
We all can agree that meatballs are awesome, right? Traditionally meatballs are made with ground beef and if you buy them at the store, they probably have wheat in them.
I had this thought of making meatballs out of sausage instead of ground beef. AND I also wanted to have a light layer of toasted almond flour around the outside.

I do NOT like touching raw meat. I'm weird I suppose, but I HAD to on this one. Normally I make my husband do the "gross" work but he was fixing a drainpipe outside before more rain came and that was more important than forming meatballs.
So, I womaned up and did the job.
PRO TIP - take your rings off first. Sigh.
Aren't these lovely though:
Alright, so down to business.
So as I said, you really need to get your hands all up in there and mix it up good.
They stay together well so forming the balls is not difficult.
I put the toasted almond flour in a deep, yet small bowl. After I formed each ball, I would set it in the bowl so the bottom would get coated. Let go and just kind of scoop the almond flour over the top. Shake it off a bit and put it on the baking sheet!

What is this toasted almond flour anyway?
Lucky for you, I wrote up the instructions (simply because I use this everywhere now and I don't want to copy and paste)! Check out How To Toast Almond flour so you can get it right the first time. Hint - I didn't!
It is pretty simple though, so don't fret. And make sure you toast it because it makes a difference.

Make these with my Keto Garlic Cauliflower Rice. Then cut up the sausage balls and scoop up a bite with both sausage and cauliflower. The taste together is UH-MAZING!
