Maple's Meatballs

This is a really old recipe of mine. I love the combo of savory meat with a touch of sweet maple flavor. I was always one to dip my bacon or sausage in my pancake syrup. This is part of my keto plan, and a recipe I included in the January Diner News. Let me warn you--the house smells amazing when you make these.

Here's my keto version from the newsletter:

Maple’s Meatballs

1/2 lb pork sausage (or plain ground pork)
1/2 lb ground beef
1 tsp maple flavoring
2 tbsp granulated sweetener

Mix all ingredients. Form into 10 balls and bake 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serves 5. Eat one serving: wrap and freeze the rest.

When you grow tired of eggs for breakfast, this is a nice change of pace. They go great alongside a Minute Muffin or pancakes if you aren't watching your percentages. Even plain, the sweetness hits the spot.

Who says meatballs aren't for breakfast? I love them, but they are also good for lunches and party food--maybe the superbowl?

This is one of my family's favorites and they request me to make them quite often. Love them!

Sounds tasty! Would be great with chicken or turkey too, I bet. What brand of maple flavoring do you use?
