  • Roll the mix into small, one inch balls and place on a lined sheet tray.

Tips.

-These are the perfect appetizer to serve with a dipping sauce. A simple barbeque sauce goes perfectly or try something different like a cranberry orange glaze.
-The sausage balls freeze very well once cooked. Wrap in an airtight container and freeze for up to a month. Reheat in the microwave.
