Tips For Making The Best Sausage Ball Appetizers
- Take care to make your sausage balls as close to the same size as possible. This will ensure they all take the same amount of time to cook. You can even use a small scoop to help make them evenly sized.
- You can use a mild cheddar cheese if you like, but we have found that a freshly grated sharp cheddar gives the recipes a bite in keeping with the kicked up Creole flavors.
- Cooking spray keeps the sausage balls from sticking to the pan, while the foil makes clean up so much easier. So don’t skip that step!
- I use my hands to mix the sausage ball ingredients to together, but you can also use your stand mixer with the dough attachment.
- A broiler pan is a handy for keeping the sausage balls up out of the grease and sausage drippings. If you choose use a broiler pan though, you don’t get those nice crispy bottoms that are so good!
