Venison Sausage Meatballs (Low Carb)

1 lb premium sausage
1 lb ground venison
1 egg
2 or more cups shredded cheese (I used 3 cups)

Mix all ingredients together.  I put mine in my mixer and let my dough hook mix it up for me.  When it was mixed up really good, I took out my cookie scoop and put my balls on my cookie sheet covered with non-stick parchment paper. I didn’t put the parchment down for the first batch and I can tell you, that was not a good idea. The clean up was a major mess.  I won’t make that mistake again. Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes depending on how large your Venison Sausage Meatballs are.

This is so much easier then rolling out one ball at a time... just scoop up a ball and put it on the pan.

My pan full and going into the oven with non-stick parchment paper. I should have put down non-stick parchment paper under the Venison Sausage Meatballs so they wouldn't stick. My cookie sheet was a mess!!! I learned my lesson on this one. I had to soak my cookie sheet on top of scrubbing it to death.

Turn out so much better... cooked 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes and the parchment paper was a lifesaver as far as cleaning the pan. I am going to cut back on the cheese since it seems so much of it melted out anyway. Note: You will notice the balls won't increase in size like normal sausage balls because it does not have any biscuit mix, flour of any kind. Just meat, egg and cheese.

This is the second recipe that I have tried making Low Carb Venison Sausage Balls and this recipe is by far much better than the first one I tried.
