These are awesome! They went over really well on my appetizer tray. I do however think that the 1/2 cup of bread cubes is a typo as it was way too soggy. I ended up adding another cup of and they were perfect. Thanks Janice! Read More

I was looking for a sausage ball recipe to use some sausage that was leftover from breakfast. It was difficult to find one that didn't call for Bisquick (which I did not have). This one was great! I only had about a quarter of a pound of sausage so I adjusted the recipe which meant I should use 1/4 of an egg??? I left that out and added a handful of shredded cheddar cheese instead. Also I didn't have any stuffing mix so I substituted Progresso Italian bread crumbs. I was very pleased with the results. And one more thing I noticed in the picture that these balls make quite a mess of the pan so I lined mine with foil. No mess and they were just fabulous. Thank you for the great recipe! Read More

I made these to take to a New Year's eve party. I doubled it and used two boxes of Stove Top chicken flavor two rolls of Jimmy Dean sage sausage and I added a 16oz. package of finely shredded cheddar/jack cheese. I omitted the onion and celery but added some onion powder (running short on time). I missed the part about changing the temperature setting and ended up cooking these on 350 for the entire time but did follow the instructions for covering the batch. Nearly all of them were eaten and I got many compliments. Even my husband who doesn't like sausage really liked them. I will definitely use this one again! Thanks! Read More

These are really very good. I've made them with and without the chopped onion with and without the baking powder with and without shredded cheddar and they always come out perfect and taste wonderful! This is my no fail appetizer recipe for casual gatherings that I know will please everyone. My kids enjoy dipping them in BBQ sauce or sweet and sour sauce. Read More

After I read all the reviews I made one 6oz of chicken Stove Top according to the package directions and mixed a bit of minced onion and italian blend shredded cheese (what I had on hand) with the uncooked hot sausage and then blended in the stuffing. Rolled into balls and cooked according to directions. Everyone raved about these all night! I served them with marinara but they were good without it too! I will definitely be making these again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
