  • Oven
  • Oven Pan
  • Icecream Scoop (Optional)
  • Basting Brush (Optional)



  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 oz Parmesan Cheese

For Baking



  • Preheat oven to 350 F°. Line Oven Pan with aluminium foil or parchment paper. Brush olive oil onto pan.

Mixing it all up and Forming Balls

  • Move the ground pork to a large bowl and crack an egg over it. Then add in the almond flour, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, baking powder, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, Apple Cider Vinegar, salt, and pepper.
    Pour cheddar cheese into bowl
  • Your bowl should look like below once everything has been added.
    Everything poured in
  • Mix everything them up with your hands by kneading, sculpting, squeezing.
    Pro Tip: Use gloves if you don't want to get your hands dirty.
  • Once mixed, it should look like below.
  • Grab about 2 tablespoons full of the mix and roll into the size of a gold ball. Depending on the size of the sausage balls, this recipe yielded me about 26 pieces. Place them neatly on the oven pan.
    Note: You can use an icecream scoop but I just used my hands.

Oven Time

  • Once all of the balls have been placed on the oven pan, move the pan over to the oven. Bake for about 10 minutes and flip them over, then bake for another 10 minutes. After about 20 minutes, balls are ready for plating.
    Pro Tip: If you want them more crispy, switch oven to broil and leave in oven for another 2 minutes.

Toppings and Dips

  • You can garnish with parsley or serve just the way it is. A dipping sauce I like is with low carb tomato sauce. Enjoy!
