Low-Carb Greek Keftethes (Meatballs)

Serves 6, your time = 30 mins, chilling time = 2 hours
One serving contains 17g fat, 29g protein, 3.6g carbs and 1g of fiber for 2.6g of net carbs.

Keftethes are great cold as a starter or hot as part of the main meal, they never last long in my fridge.
Most cultures have their own twist on the humble meetball and most, like Keftethes are easy to make.

Low-Carb German Obatzda

Serves 10, your time = 10 mins, chilling time = 2 hours
One serving contains 36g fat, 14.5g protein, 3.1g carbs and 0.1g of fiber for 3g of net carbs.
The thing I miss most about Germany is spending an afternoon at a Bavarian Biergarten with family and friends. When we lived there my wife and I fell in love with Obatzda, a soft cheese and onion dip that is a perfect accompaniment to beer, Bretzen (large pretzels) and in an emergency, vegetable sticks.

Much of what I enjoyed at the Biergarten does not fit into a low-carb lifestyle but Obatzda does!!
