Sausage-Cheddar Balls

Sausage-Cheddar Balls
We all wish to serve great starters at our parties without spending a walletfull on ordering from restaurants and they absolutely need to taste yummy! They have to be quick, and simple and tasty and if they may be prepped in advance then its super awesome! Here’s a recipe for the ultimate sausage balls which can be made so easily using the readymade sausages available in all supermarkets these days, your favorite cheese and just some spices. I chanced upon this recipe when I wanted to use the cheese and the frozen sausages in my freezer and couldn’t think of anything else than to just put it all together! A must try! I am showing the recipe here for the baked variety of the dish for other calorie conscious foodies like me, but you can also deep fry these balls in refined oil or peanut oil till golden brown on medium heat.

Yields: 45 small servings
Oven Temp: 400 F
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour/Maida

400 gms Breakfast Chicken Sausage (pulsed in a blender)
½ large onion, grated on large holes of a box grater

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, pepper, Chili powder, and baking powder.

  • With your hands, mix until well combined and roll mixture into 1-inch balls.
