From the time I was young, it has been tradition for our family to make sausage balls. We would have them as appetizers for big occasions like Christmas, birthdays, or even the Super Bowl! It was and still is one of the things I look forward to on the special days.
They really are yummy! The outside has a crisp crunch to it and even though there aren’t many ingredients, there is still a fantastic ZING to the flavor! Pair it up with this Creamy Mustard Dip and you really can’t go wrong!
A party hor dourve, or a pre-dinner appetizer! There are so many “right time and places” for these babies to be enjoyed! Perfect timing for the upcoming NFL Super Bowl!
