Ingredients

Something about sausage and holidays seems to just go well together. I’m not usually a big fan of sausage in terms of meat, but I tend to like sausage recipes, when I’m looking for different holiday dishes. If sausage meat isn’t your thing either you could opt for hamburger and make stuffed meatballs instead. Those are equally delicious! For sake of argument, here is the recipe for the Stuffing Sausage Balls:

  • 1 lb Sausage Jimmy Dean
  • 8 slices Bacon6 ounces Dry Stuffing Mix, prepare according to instructions3 cups Cheddar cheese, shredded Cooked and diced
  • 6 oz Stuffing Prepare according to instructions
  • 3 cups Cheddar Cheese Shredded

Stuffing Sausage Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Combine sausage, cooked bacon, cooked stuffing, and cheese in a large bowl. Mix it until thoroughly combined.
  • Roll into balls that are approximately 1 heaping tablespoon each.
  • Place sausage balls on prepared baking sheet, make sure to pack the balls tightly so they hold together as they bake.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, or until cooked through.

Stuffed Meatballs

Although these stuffed meatballs remind me of Thanksgiving because they consist of stuffing, they actually aren’t specifically a Thanksgiving dish. After all, they don’t have turkey in them! And because they do consist of bacon, you could make these stuffed meatballs any time of the year. Basically, there is no bad time to have bacon.

The stuffing sausage balls are very moist. And they stay moist even as they cool down. Thus, these are a great choice of appetizer to put out for your guests. Of course, eating them while they are warm is the best, but eating them at room temperature is still good too.

You could even go all out and mix up a side of homemade cranberry sauce to dip the stuffed meatballs in. That would really scream Thanksgiving app. Whenever you serve these bite size sausage balls, they are great. And this savory finger foody is a great change of pace from the regular chips and dips!
