Free Recipe Wednesday! (Sausage Balls)

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Free Recipe Wednesday. Today’s recipe is an easy one that is delicious and easy to make. These are perfect as an appetizer for holiday family get-togethers. I’ve been making these since I was a kid and the recipe below is just the basic recipe. They’re good made with just the basic recipe below but of course there are a lot of variations. My favorite way to make these is to wrap the sausage mixture around a black olive before cooking them. It’s a nice added dimension of flavor, if you like black olives of course. You could also use hot sausage and add a little cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to make a spicy version of these. I also prefer to shallow fry my sausage balls instead of baking them but of course the healthier option would be baking. Give these a try and let me know what types of variations you come up with for these.
