2.5ozmushroomschopped (I use shiitake today. Alt. cremini, portobello mushrooms).
Preheat oven to 400/420 F.
Peel the skin of sweet potato. Dice it to smaller chunks. Add a bit water to a microwave safe container. Nuke them until they are soft and mash. (Note: add a bit water to mash the sweet potato if it’s too dry).
Slightly crisp up bacon strips. Chop them into smaller pieces.
Mix ground pork/chicken with 3 ½ tbsp chopped fresh herbs, sweet potato mash, bacon pieces, and chopped mushrooms.
Line a non-stick aluminum foil over a large/flat sheet pan and make about 22 meatballs (small golf size balls).
Bake until they are golden brown and cooked through. Baking time about - 1st side: 16 mins. Flip them and bake 2nd side: 10 mins. To give the meatballs a golden brown color, turn oven to High broil for an additional 2 minutes.
*Note: Once the meatballs are cool, put them in ziplock bag and store in the freezer. Reheat in the microwave in the morning for a quick and savory delicious breakfast !
