  • 1 lb low-fat breakfast sausage - you can also use turkey sausage
  • 1 small sweet potato - shredded *we used a potato peeler to get our fine see notes for other option
  • 4 oz button mushrooms - finely chopped
  • 1/4 sweet onion finely chopped
  • 3 slices of bacon cooked crispy and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced *you can use 1 teaspoon of minced garlic if you have that on hand
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place the shredded sweet potato, mushrooms, and onion into a medium bowl with breakfast sausage, maple syrup, garlic clove, and cooked bacon
  • Mix well - using your hands is the easiest way
  • Once mixed well, make 1-2 inch size meatballs with your hands and place them on a baking sheet
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until meatballs are golden brown and completely cooked through
  • Drizzle with maple syrup right before serving
  • Serve with waffles, pancakes or eggs if desired
  • Enjoy!


If you have a shredding attachment on your food processor, you can use that to "chop" the mushrooms, sweet potato, and onion.  You can easily make this recipe the night before and toss it in the oven in the morning.
