2 lbs. bulk sausage
¼ cup maple syrup plus a little extra to drizzle
4 pancakes, cubed
Preheat oven to 375°.
In a medium bowl, mix the sausage, syrup, and egg together. Mix in the pieces of pancake until evenly distributed. Form into balls slightly larger than a tablespoon and place on a baking sheet.
Drizzle with some additional maple syrup and bake for 22-25 minutes. Serve warm.
Makes 24 meatballs.
Mix together sausage, egg, and maple syrup.
Chop up a few pancakes. If you really want to make these meatballs but don't want to take the time to make pancakes first, you could chop up a few warmed up frozen waffles. I haven't tried it that way, but I'm sure it would work.
Mix pancake pieces into the sausage.
Shape into balls and bake.
Couldn't be easier. And makes a wonderful, tasty breakfast. If you want to turn these into a grab-and-go kind of breakfast, you could freeze them after baking (laid out on a baking sheet so they don't stick together), then throw them in a large freezer bag. In the morning, take out however many you want, pop them in the microwave for a minute and you're good to go!
