Weekends are a great time for experimenting with new breakfast foods so today I decided to make meatballs for breakfast. These are not your average meatballs with the egg and breadcrumbs...I left those out and focused on meat and cheese...and a little of my favorite in meatballs ~ fennel seed. I added in a little bit of real maple syrup to help caramelize the meatballs. I did not add in additional salt or pepper since these are already in the breakfast sausage.
1# turkey breakfast sausage
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp fennel seed
3/4 cup Marble Jack shredded cheese
Hand mix all the ingredients together. Form into balls and bake for 25 minutes at 350°.
Makes 16 meatballs.
