Low Carb Breakfast Balls

I used to live off of these when I was low carbing. They freeze really well. I also occasionally mixed in TVP (texturized vegetable protein) and flax for some extra fiber.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients together until thoroughly blended (it is best to use your hands or an electric mixer).
  2. Form into about 4 dozen 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet or broiler pan.
  3. Bake at 375°F for about 25 minutes.
  4. Once they are cool, they can be sorted into individual zip bags and frozen for a grab-and-go breakfast.
  5. NOTE: for Scotch Eggs, mold a bit of the raw meat mixture around a peeled hard-boiled egg (or eggs) and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

I really enjoyed these as a no carb breakfast. Today, I am adding spinach and garlic powder.

Mercy, these are SO good! Thanks for posting them! I made them with 1lb sausage and about 2lbs ground beef, and instead of the onion flakes and pepper I used 2Tbsp of 3 Onion Dip Mix (by Epicure Selections) and 3Tbsp of ground Flax. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!

Scotch eggs are delicious dipped in a spicy mustard, and can be eaten hot, at room temp, or cold. Yummy!
