Usually on Christmas Eve, I make a big pot of tamales – but since I recently made a giant batch of them (and still have some in the freezer), I decided that this year I would serve a Christmas Eve dinner of nothing but appetizers (with maybe some tamale cups instead). And when it comes to appetizers, I’ve gotta have some sausage balls in the mix. I just love them & I always have!
I have a standard way of making them, but I decided to switch stuff up a little bit this time – with fantastic results! I think this is how I’ll make my sausage balls from now on. It produces a light & airy sausage ball just popping with flavor. Yummm.
You only need 4 ingredients to make them. Super duper simple.
Go for the mild flavors if you don’t like spicy – or if you want a good spicy kick in it, then use the hot sausage & medium/hot version of tomatoes. Or, you can just add some chopped up jalapenos to the mix.
Notice the Red Gold tomatoes in the picture? I have become a recent converter to their products. I’m usually not a brand specific kind of person – but wow, they’ve captured my tomato loving heart with these.
They want you to try them too – so they’ve offered up a variety box of their products to one lucky reader here at the Mrs!
It’s easy to enter, and lots of chances to get extra entries as well! Congrats to Russ Linda Merriet, the contest winner!!
Now, for that sausage ball recipe I promised you! You know I’m actually snacking on one as I’m typing this? Yep, multi-tasking at it’s best.
Disclosure: I received a sample of products from Red Gold tomatoes. All words, opinions, and my love for their product (and sausage balls!) are all my own!
