Apple Cheese Sausage Balls
- 2 pounds bulk sausage
- 8 ounces grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 package unseasoned bread crumbs
- (or make your own using 4 slices of toasted bread)
- 4 small apples cored, unpeeled, and cut into bite-size pieces
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Using an ice cream scoop as a measure, form into 2-inch balls. Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees until done, about 30 to 45 minutes.
This recipe yields about 24 balls.
Chef's Note: This recipe can be prepared ahead and frozen. Place the baked sausage balls on a pan and partially freeze. Place in a freezer bag and use as needed.
