I have been trying all kinds of caprese recipes lately, so why not try one more time with a low carb version? The good news is, these skews are not only low carb, they are also gluten free. And look at the colours, how great is that! A great snack or appetizer for any poolside party, or any party really.

I always love tomatos, meatballs, and cheese, so put them all together on this skew is really my kind of food. OK, other than my ever favorite cupcakes, of course.

So are you ready? Let’s dig in and make these meatballs. Check out the recipe below. You can use other meat to replace the beef, such as chicken mince, or turkey mince. Enjoy:

Caprese Meatballs Low Carb Gluten Free


500g ground beef
1 egg
1/4 c flour ( check out gluten free flour here)
1/2 tspn salt
1/3 tspn black pepper (or to taste)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp sun dried tomatoes (chopped, I like the Bella brand)
2 Tbsp fresh basil (chopped)

Combine all ingredients except the olive oil in a medium bowl, and mix thoroughly.

Make 16 meatballs in total.

Heat the olive oil in a pan.

Fry the meatballs and cook over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Make sure they don’t burn.

Assemble the meatballs on skewers with fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and cherry tomatoes alternatively. Have a glass of red ready and enjoy!

  1. Thank you for the link love! Your blog is lovely. 🙂

  2. Your recipe calls for flour yet you state it is gluten free. Could you note which flour you used to make it gluten free?

    • Hi, Meg,

      You can try Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour. Check out on Amazon above in my post or check out a supermarket near you.

        Thanks! I am a newbie to this celiac thing, just a month and a half gluten free. I am tired of paying high prices for pre-made products. And I love meatballs, so a gluten free meatball is a great thing. I appreciate your response. I have some BRM gf flour. And I have all the ingredients. I think I know what I am making tonight. : )

        Oh, and thank you for no onions or garlic in this. I can’t eat those, which makes following recipes difficult.
