I get a lot of questions from people about recipes that don’t have eggs in them, so I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes from www.paleomg.com/ There are no eggs and no nuts in these.
These are perfect to make in advance and then heat up in the morning when your running out the door, or anytime for that matter. The best part about these is they are paleo and grain free, so those of you trying to keep the carb intake to a minimum then this is right up your alley!
Breakfast Bacon and Sausage Amazeballs
- 1 lb. breakfast sausage (no sugar added)
- 1 sweet potato
- 4 oz button mushrooms (I used half a container of sliced button mushrooms)
- ½ yellow onion, peeled
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 5-6 slices of bacon
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place your bacon slices in a pan over medium heat. Cook on both sides until crispy, place on a paper towel to cool, then dice up into small pieces that would fit well into meatballs.
- Place your sweet potato in a food processor with the shredding attachment. If you don’t have a food processor then using a cheese grater will do the trick but, you want it pretty fine, so use those P360 muscles.
- Then shred or chop your onion and mushrooms in the same container with the sweet potato.
- Add your sweet potato, mushrooms, and yellow onion to a bowl along with your breakfast sausage, maple syrup, garlic clove, diced bacon, and salt and pepper and mix well. Your hands are your best tools!
- Place parchment paper on a baking sheet then start forming balls.
- What is helpful is using an ice cream scoop so they are all the same size. Roll the scooped out balls in your hands and place on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes until balls are golden brown and completely cooked through. Be sure to check one before you turn the oven off!
You can make these for single serving or make a large stash to eat on the go as you head to work. Enjoy!
