Johnsonville Sausage Balls

Johnsonville Sausage Balls

This weekend has been ideal Fall weather – my favorite time of year.  And that always inspires heartier dishes, slightly heavier flavors.  Comfort food.  This recipe really fits the bill as a warm appetizer on a nice Fall day that you’ll have trouble walking away from until they are all gone. And better, they were really quick and easy to make.

Johnsonville provided the sausage, and I provided the appetite.  I’m a picky eater, so I left out the mushrooms and onion and just filled in with a little extra cheese (cheddar makes everything better).  And they didn’t have the ground spicy sausage at my store so I got mild Italian.  It’s my favorite sausage, and it made these just spicy enough.

The flavors mix well, they’re so easy to make…and I think I may try changing this recipe up with a few variations.  I could see making these with mozzarella instead of cheddar and dipping them in marinara, for example, or a breakfast sausage variation.

Happy Fall!  Get this Johnsonville Sausage recipe at

    I LOVE sausage balls! I’ve never had them with mushrooms and onion before, :-) good call leaving them out. I’ve never thought to try them with Italian sausage before, I’ll have to give them a try!
