Keto Guido Bomb Parmesan

Keto Guido Bomb Parmesan2

What happens when you put an Italian sausage link inside of a meatball, then top it with marinara and cheese? Keto bliss, that’s what. One of my tastiest recipes in the arsenal and surprisingly easy to prepare.

Because I eat one meal a day most days I ate an entire bomb but you can portion into slices very easily if you want to cut the portion size down. It all depends on your daily macros and your dietary goals. These would be great served over my Cauliflower Risotto or Prosciutto wrapped asparugus, You can always make a homemade marinara but I really do love Rao’s homemade sauce and it cuts the prep time down so it was a no brainer for me.
