This is a great little recipe as you can use them in many ways, for lunch, dinner or snacks aswell. Superb for Induction Phase.

Did the numbers on this. If you use a low fat cheese and sausage and make 50 - 60 meatballs, each ball is 1 point. Not bad. Can't vouch for the taste as I haven't actually made them yet.

These taste AMAZING. I took out the onions for induction phase, just to stay on it. You could probably use onion flakes and have a few less carbs.

Awesome! I only had 1lb of the sausage so I cut back the eggs to 1, I left out the onion and I added a bit of beef base, onion powder, garlic powder and seasoning salt. They were so yummy, my girls ate about a dozen between them and hubby wants them in spaghetti sauce for dinner!

I use turkey sausage in my recipes and the food is still awesome. Plus it's cheaper and lower calorie!

I make these all of the time and then put portions of them in baggies or containers and put them in the freezer for days when i don' thave time to cook. They're great for a grab and go breakfast, snack or dinner.
I have made these twice now once with ground turkey and once with ground chicken plus the sausage and they are really good. I also made a homemade tom/spaghetti sauce and add 1-2 TBSP to the meatballs UMMMMMMM!!
Incredibly versatile and handy. I have mine with jalepeno's.

Love this recipe. I did tweak it a bit so the nutritional information may be different. I used 16 oz of sausage vs 32 oz and used ground turkey instead of beef. Delicious and oh so easy to make!
