These are so good! I used an ice cream scoop to measure the meatballs so they were uniform in size. I poked them with a meat thermometer after 25 minutes. They registered 170 degrees, but I baked them for 2 more minutes just to brown them a little more. My husband and I both thought they were very tasty!

These are great and perfect for make ahead breakfasts! I make a batch, and then throw them into freezer bags to dole out through the week.

Very tasty! I used turkey sausage instead of pork, and since I didn't have onion flakes I used onion powder. I also put in a little Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning. My husband said they were "darned good." (OK he used another word, but...) I think these would be a good addition to spaghetti sauce as well. I never seem to be able to make a really good tasting meatball, but these turned out fab. I also want to try Chef #1065437's very clever suggestion of adding spinach.

My whole family loves these! I have made them several times now using different variations but our favorite is to stick with the 2 lbs. of sausage and 1 lb. of ground turkey. I also add spinach, chia seeds, extra onions, garlic, and homemade worchestire(?) sauce. I make the balls 2 - 3" in size and cook for an extra 15 minutes or so. Thanks for a great low carb recipe!

So good! I halved the recipe and added some garlic powder. Will make these again! Great low carb breakfast.

I cut the recipe down to where I used only about a pound of meat, and I added a 1/2 tsp of course kosher salt. I got about 18 meat balls. Next time if I use the same amount of meat (half and half sausage and ground beef) I will use at least 1 tsp of course salt for a little more flavor. I will be more generous with the cheese as well. Good easy recipe!

These were exactly what I need! Easy, tasty and low carb. Even my daughter and husband like them The only thing i did differently is I used fresh diced onion instead of dry. Thanks for a great recipe!

Love these! Probaby have about 4 weeks worth of a few weekday breakfasts. They are filling and low carb which is the only way I seem to be dropping some of my fluff. My meat mixture was 1 lb mild turkey sausage, 1lb ground turkey, and 1 lb ground pork. I also used a low fat cheese.

These came out very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly and everyone in my house devoured them. I was only able to keep a few in the freezer, and yes they do freeze really well. These are awesome for breakfast on the go.
