Sloppy Joe Meatballs

These were very good and it made so many that we had them for several days. These were good the first day but they were even better when reheated the second day. I found this recipe online and modified it to suit our low carb needs. It does have a small amount of bread crumbs but not enough to alter the carb count too much. If you want to omit the bread crumbs you can but it only adds one carb per serving so I left them in. I hope that you enjoy these as well.
