The combination of ground beef, chopped bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and pork rind crumbs creates a perfect balance of textures and flavors. The egg acts as a binding agent, ensuring that the meatballs hold their shape during baking.

For those following a strict carnivore diet, the recipe can be made with just salt as the seasoning. However, if you’re open to adding a few extra spices, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic can enhance the overall taste profile. Let’s get started!

💡Tips

1. Choosing the Right Ground Beef

When selecting ground beef for your carnivore cheeseburger meatballs, it’s important to choose a high-quality, flavorful cut. Opt for ground beef with a fat content of either 80/20% or 70/30%. The higher fat content will ensure that your meatballs remain juicy and tender during the cooking process.
