Here's a recipe for a low carb African Merguez Sausage that is bursting with flavor but can be created from spices you probably already have. Fast, delicious, keto meatballs bring in a new and different taste using familiar spices.
African Merguez Sausage
Here's another piece of very good news about my African Merguez Sausage recipe--which is that it was featured on Foodie Fanatic, which is a collection of some extremely talented bloggers. I cannot believe my best meatball recipe was included in this lot.
Each blogger focuses on a particular niche, and I will be focusing on contributing easy Keto meals from time to time to the site. So I submitted this low carb African Merguez Sausage as my first one, and I'm looking forward to adding many more to their collection over the next few months and years.
Is This Recipe Allergy Friendly?
I'm all about using spices in different combinations to introduce your palette to a variety of cuisines. I also know that if you are cooking for someone with allergies, it's often difficult to trust purchased food, which means you miss out on a lot of different types of tastes. This recipe is Dairy-Free, Nut-Free, and Gluten-Free. It makes it a front runner if you're cooking with someone with food allergies.
This is why I make my own German Bratwurst and my own Thai Curry Sausage, as well as great Keto meatballs. I also love making Kofta Kababs. In fact, one day I think I'll make a platter of kebabs from around the world, invite a few friends over, and all of us can sit around and pig out on these wonderful low carb appetizers.
What Kind of Meat Do You Use To Make These Keto Meatballs?
Merguez is traditionally made with ground lamb, and is put into casings. but I made this one with ground chicken and I skipped the casings because I'm all about great, authentic taste but made fast and I must say, it was delicious.
Do These Meatballs Freeze Well?
These low carb meatballs freeze very well so they're great for making up a batch and doing a quick meal prep with them.
