Expert Tips

Since these are the ultimate party food they’re worth planning ahead for. Roll them up and freeze on baking sheets until firm. Then plop them into resealable plastic freezer bags and store for up to 1 month. Bake as needed, no defrosting required, at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

What is Sausage? Nothing more than finely chopped and well-seasoned meat; sausages depend on some degree or fat in the mixture, which gives it its succulence and delicious flavor.

Offer a variety of dips when serving these up to guests. Try barbecue sauce, chili sauce a mayo/yogurt dressing mixed up with a good sprinkle of garlic salt, lots of chopped fresh herbs and more Parmesan cheese, or blend of Ranch dressing with a spoonful of basil pesto.

Lightly wet your hands to roll the balls to prevent sticking.
