Spicy Hot Sausage Balls

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Zanna_409104061

Can't remember where I got this. But it's a really fun and easy recipe, a great appetizer for most any occasion. It is important you use packaged sausage and not meat counter sausage (I used Jimmy Dean brand) because the consistency is not the same.

Another "keeper" that's been in my recipe stash for 20 years. Honey mustard and barbeque sauce are two more sauces that compliment this recipe. I like to make these hors d'oevours into one inch balls, since they puff up a bit when they bake. Whatever the occasion, these always disappear quickly when they are served. Heed Zanna's words and use a good quality sausage. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Zanna.
