Use Your Favorite Sausage
Do you prefer chicken sausage? Pork? Turkey? Beef? You have so many options.
You know what kind I use? I use the kind that is on sale at the store. That kind.
I went to Sprouts market recently and took advantage of a $10 off $60 coupon that was texted to me (so if you have Sprouts nearby, join their rewards program because it is valuable!). I went to the store and got their sausage that was on sale and tried the original and sage varieties. Both were excellent with this recipe!
On Making the Sausage Meatballs
I’d suggest using gloves if you have them for making meatballs. That just helps with food safety.
Use one pound of sausage, almond flour, coconut flour, garlic, ricotta cheese, salt, and an egg to make these meatballs. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl, then combine with the wet ingredients. Make sure that the egg is well mixed into the meat or else you’ll find baked egg on the bottom of your pan.
In tablespoon sized portions, roll the meatballs and place in an oven-safe baking dish. If you want to make the meatballs larger, by all means, go for it. You’ll just have to bake them longer.
Bake at 350°F for approximately 25 minutes, or until the internal temp reaches 170°F. The easiest way to ensure food safety is to use a meat thermometer!
If you want to use this recipe for meal prep, the meatballs are great for quick protein bites! You can pack them in individual servings or just bake a batch and use them throughout the week.
