Breakfast Meatballs

These breakfast meatballs are so tasty and make for the easiest breakfast. Just make a batch of these on Sunday and then you’ll have them ready for quickly re-heating in the morning the next few days. They are packed with flavor from the bacon and sausage and they bind together well with the shredded parsnip.
