- Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a muffin tin with coconut oil. Set out a baking sheet.
- Mix all breakfast sausage ingredients together and form one-tablespoon sized meat balls. Arrange on ungreased baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare "pillows."
- Place all biscuit ingredients, except gelatin, in large mixing bowl.
- Prepare gelatin egg substitute: Whisk one tablespoon gelatin into one tablespoon cool water. Add two tablespoons boiling water. Whisk vigorously until completely dissolved and frothy. Add to mixing bowl and mix on medium until a dough forms.
- Form 24 one-tablespoon sized balls of dough. Place one ball into each mini muffin cup.
- When meatballs are finished, remove them from oven. Press one "pig" (meatball) into each unbaked "pillow" (biscuit) until the dough spreads up around each meatball.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden brown.

I made this for breakfast and I love it. I am burnt out on eating the same foods all the time. This was a fairly easy recipe for me. I used ground chicken since I didn’t have pork. I added 1/8 tsp mace. Thank you.
