We used reduced fat sausage & the onion flakes & they were awesome!!

These are delicious! I only used sausage, no beef. I also cut out the onions but used onion powder. And my picky family loved them! I will definitely make them again

These taste very yummy - used 1 1/2 lbs of each (pork and beef) since I didn't have enough ground pork, added ground pepper, garlic powder and used minced onion flakes. Was going to add some chili flakes and forgot, so added some hot sauce to the meatballs I had for breakfast this morning.
These were absolutely yummy.

I used turkey breakfast sausage and very lean ground beef. My sons and I loved them. Froze some also, just as good warmed up.
EXCELLENT taste and easy to make. . . BUT, This recipe makes nowhere near 50 - 60 "1 1/2 inch" meatballs. Yield for me was 32, so this makes the serving size 2.13 meatballs to reach 313 calories per serving. Not enough volume here for a breakfast or as a side-dish, for that matter.

I made this recipe using turkey sausage and omitting the eggs, shaped into a meatloaf and baked. OMG, it was SO good. Will be a staple for my Atkins WOE. Thanks for sharing.

Great primal snack on the go!

These are divine. I haven't made this version but make some similar using parmesan cheese, butter, and spinach, and also add Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning. Yum! I think these are great for Induction except maybe the onion, which you could use onion powder.
