Minds out of the gutter now? Let's make some delicious balls.
These balls come together with three types of cheese! Now that's a good start. I also use zesty pork sausage for some zip. Garlic powder, Dijon mustard and salt round out your ingredient list. Now all you need to do is roll and bake.
I've found that these balls are great football food. Guys just gravitate to them! Why not make them for the National Championship game next Monday (Roll Tide) and watch them disappear in minutes.
Listen gang, enjoy your Sausage Balls. I will too. And I'll do my best to keep the maturity level around here more elevated. But I'm not making any promises.....Happy New Year ☺
Here's our recipe:
(makes about 18 balls)
1 pound zesty ground pork sausage
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 C shredded, sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
1/2 t garlic powder
1 T Dijon mustard
1/2 t salt
Preheat oven to 350℉. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together all of your ingredients, gently, with your hands until just combined. Roll heaping tablespoons of the pork mixture into balls and place on your prepared cookie sheet. Place balls into the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow baked balls to drain off excess grease onto a paper towel lined tray. Serve immediately with honey mustard or dipping sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
