I’m a sucker for a sausage ball. A sucker. They’re just the perfect little nibble for either breakfast or an appetizer. I also love that they’re easy to make, travel well and can be prepared in advance. I usually use my Ultimate Sausage Ball recipe as my go-to but when I saw this recipe in my Celebrate magazine, I knew I must try it. I used cheddar instead of their Parmesan but honestly, I don’t think you could go wrong with any cheese you choose (a nice spicy Pepper Jack would be delish too!). It was love at first bite. The perfect appetizer for watching a football game!
1 pound pork sausage (I used Owens Spicy)
2 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
(makes about a dozen)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine by hand your sausage, potatoes and cheese. Form into one inch round balls and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake about 25 minutes.
That’s it! Three ingredients…super, super simple! And delicious too! You’ll find love at first bite as well :).
