Pork and Sage Breakfast MeatballsI absolutely love pork and sage breakfast sausage, but it’s really tricky to find store-bought sausages that use clean ingredients and have no added sugars. I decided to take it upon myself to make my own Pork and Sage Breakfast Meatballs since I am in the middle of a Whole30 and really, really want breakfast sausage.

I’m also a big fan of leftover meatballs during my whole30 because they are the perfect grab and go protein pre or post-workout, or for when you just need a little something to snack on in the afternoon. I decided to make my sausage craving into an easy, portable, and baked meatball so that meal prep is easier than ever! 

Pork and Sage Breakfast Meatballs

I loved having these Pork and Sage Breakfast Meatballs in my fridge all week for breakfasts and post-workout snacking. In fact, I think next week I will just go ahead and double the recipe because with Clayton and I, these did not last long enough! I think they’d also freeze well if you are batch cooking!

    1. To reheat, place the frozen meatballs in an ovenproof pan or baking dish and cover with foil. Bake low (like 300°F) until warmed all the way through- 25 mins or so!

  1. 5 stars
    Delicious!! Made these for Whole 30 as a quick breakfast option. I will definitely make a double batch next time!!

  2. Just made a batch of these for breakfast this week. Wow! They’re perfectly seasoned with the mix of spices in the recipe! (I was not shy with the red pepper flakes!). I used ground turkey because that’s what I had on hand, and added a peeled and shredded apple to the mix. Next time I’ll make a big batch and freeze for easy breakfasts!
