Feel free to use whatever herbs or herb mix you want. Although this recipe doesn’t taste spicy, I know that some people aren’t too fond of paprika or chili flakes so feel free to leave those out if you wish.
We always recommend trying to get the highest quality ingredients including organic and pasture-raised meat and eggs.

This turkey sausage balls recipe is full of high quality protein, healthy fats and fiber to support the gut. Replacing your breakfast cereal, oatmeal or pancakes with this recipe will help you burn fat and have better energy throughout the day!
This recipe goes very well with our tomato basil omelet and out keto hash browns for a breakfast feast. If you had a meal like this, you could easily fast through until dinner without feeling hungry or having cravings. Of course, you don’t have to consume these for breakfast and can easily have them as a side dish for lunch or dinner as well.
Although I personally never eat breakfast, as I prefer to intermittent fast through the morning, my family does our breakfast food meal on most Sundays. We make eggs, kale and onions and either grass-fed beef bacon or turkey sausage like this. It is always so enjoyable and I know you guys will love it as well!
