A quick and easy low sodium meatballs recipe that can be whipped up in a short 25 minutes. If you prefer poultry, you can always substitute the ground beef for ground chicken or turkey and make something just as special. Sometimes less is more, which is on display in this low sodium meatball recipe.

If you're been following a low sodium diet for some time now, then you understand the importance of prepping things in advance. This is why I highly recommend doubling, or even tripling this recipe and freezing these low sodium meatballs for later. They hold really well frozen and can be pulled out and popped into a hot marinara sauce or oven for an easy dinner.
