Breakfast Meatballs
These are fantastic for breakfast or just to go snack: My sister in law gave me the recipe and I just made them for the first time. They are just too good! :daze:

Breakfast Meatballs:

2 lbs sausage
1 lb ground beef
3 eggs
2 TBS instant minced onion
1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese
black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Roll into 1-1/2" balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes. Makes about 50 meatballs. They freeze well after cooking for an anytime snack.

Yea! Breafast Meatballs!
Thank you so much for sharing this. I loved these and always struggle with breakfast. I would love to add a rating, but don't know how!

This is a great recipe...One of my very favorites! I just made up a fresh batch and had some for dinner with a salad! I just love them! :)

I made these today with a couple of changes. I used a pound of ground beef, turkey and sausage.

They are great.

sausage meat, you mean sausages in the casing, do you take the meat out of the casing, I really want to make a batch of these, tonight actually.

DeanaJane Wed, Sep-03-03 07:52

I loved them so much I made another batch this weekend. his time I added more onions and some green peppers to get some veggies in.
These are a great snack anytime of the day.

I used Jimmie Dean (SP). Regular old breakfast sausage. Not the sausage that is like Kelbasa I think that is in the casing your talking about. It's not the patties either. Hope this helps.

Heading out to bring home some Jimmy Dean right now!

This sounds good, and makes a great "keeper" dish for the 'fridge when my husband decides to get breakfast together.


To anyone not familar with bulk sausage, ground pork and some black pepper, sage, onion powder and a dash of salt gives great results in dishes.

i made a batch of these this morning! i am allergic to eggs so i didn't use egg and i don't like onion so i used onion powder but even with these changes they are wonderful!! i even heated a few up for lunch. great recipe!

I did try the Breakfast Meatballs but I tweeked it quite a bit.

Because I'm on OWL I figured I could add the extra carbs so here's what i did:

I added chopped baby spinach, chopped mushrooms and celery, some garlic too. I stuck a cube of colby cheese in the middle.

It was awsome! I give it a two thumbs up!

The only problem was, my husband ate them all .... now I gotta make more today. I'm making a big, big batch so I can freeze them. I've always struggled with breakfast because eggs are beginning to make me gag if I have them any more than twice a week.

Breakfast Meatballs is my new best friend ... that and Deep Dish Pizza Quiche!

Are we talking Breakfast sausages or regular sausages with the meat taken out of the casings and grounded? I'm confused! LOL

Norma June Wed, Apr-14-04 09:41

Kim, the sausage meat is without casing. You can buy it in the frozen food section of the grocery store. One brand is Maple Leaf and I forget the brand name of one I've been buying as it's relatively new. You just gotta try these meatballs, they're yummy!
