Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a medium bowl, mix eggs with the spices. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls (I used a cookie scoop).

Arrange the balls in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned.

Freeze any leftovers in a Ziploc bag in a single layer for future dinners/snacks.
