Spicy Sausage Balls.
I can’t believe that the year is almost over. The shorter days, the fact that’s it’s now dark by 5pm (sigh), the COLD temperatures and the sheer amount of appetizer recipes that are being searched for on the site all tell me this is true. It also tells me that it’s time to share a few more easy and effortless appetizers with y’all. Wouldn’t want you to not have options.
That would be a shame. Today we’re going way back to a family favorite. Sausage balls. Not just any regular sausage balls, oh no, SPICY sausage balls. Now IF you don’t happen to like spicy, you’re welcome to simply substitute a milder Italian sausage for the hot. We won’t hold it against you. Much.
You can’t have sausage balls without sausage and CHEESE. Today we’re using Sargento Shredded Cheese . Off the Block Sharp Cheddar Shredded Natural Cheddar Cheese (Fine Cut). Because the best meals include cheese, Amen? We chose Sargento’s Sharp Cheddar because it pairs beautifully with the HOT Italian sausauge and for it’s melt-a-bility (totally a word right?) factor!
