I could not get the sausage balls to stick together. I added milk and egg and still had trouble. I think it would work better to form the balls before you brown the sausage. The taste was super, but by the time we ate it, there were not many "balls" intact.

I made this for the superbowl party. The girls liked this more than the guys did.
