These are perfect for breakfast in a hurry. I made up a full batch the other day using 1 pound hot sausage and 1 pound regular and they came out great. I just threw the rest of them in the freezer and pull out a few every morning for breakfast. If I was not on the low carb diet I would definately pattie some of this up and throw on a biscuit or bagel with an egg. Thanks for sharing :)

Great Idea. I modified the recipe to suit what I had on hand and it was still great. I used breakfast sausage in place of the pork and ground beef. Added garlic powder, red pepper flakes, paprika and salt. Tasty and

Very tasty! I would suggest using a no stick pan or lining one with parchment so they don't stick. So easy to make and filling. Even my picky husband liked them.

We love these meatballs, and they do freeze well. I made them using 1 pound of regular sausage and 1 pound of hot sausage along with the ground beef and the other ingredients, and they are fabulous! A real dietsaver---just pop 4 or 5 frozen ones in the microwave for 60-90 seconds to stave off the hunger pangs. Thanks!

These were great! I just got back on the low carb and was looking for something a little heavier to keep me going in the morning. I used swiss cheese instead of the cheddar and also added 3 Tbs of ground flax as you suggested for the extra fiber. Definately keeping these in the OAMC rotation.

These are just awesome.I didn't have onion flakes, so I added a bit of garlic and grated parmesan for flavour instead. Yummy. I made small ones and also larger ones which I made into Scotch Eggs. I found the Scotch Eggs don't freeze as well though, the egg inside gets very tough. So eat them fresh! Thanks for a super idea, I can grab one of these when I am on the go and still be low carbing!

These were delicious if a bit on the salty side (unless you make your own, you are at the mercy of the sausage maker.) Next time I will use 1 pound of sausage, and 2 pounds of ground beef or turkey. Easily and quickly prepared, they make a great low carb snack or grab and go breakfast. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mercy...thank you so so much for this recipe!!! I made these yesterday and they were a huge hit with the whole family (there are 5 of us)!!! Absolutely delicious!!! I made them exactly as directed with the exception of adding a bit more pepper, a tiny amount of salt and around 2 TBS of parsley flakes. Also, I cooked them for 30 minutes because we like them a little crispier. My yield was around 70 meatballs, but I think I made them a bit smaller. We are following the keto diet and this is a very welcome addition to our menu. Just LOVE the savory flavor of these!!! Both my daughter's told me to keep these made and in the fridge at all times from now on...lol :0) We ate them yesterday for a snack and today for breakfast. Thanks again for this fantastic recipe!!!
