  3. Add in the pancakes, and mix just until combined.
  4. Form into tablespoon sized balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

  6. Serve meatballs with extra syrup for drizzling, if desired.

Recipe Notes:

*You’ll want to use the breakfast sausage that comes in a tube, not sausage links.
