Let’s kick-off the holiday season with one of my favorites (have you noticed I have a lot of favorites?), Pilot Mountain Sausage Balls. Growing up I just called them sausage balls but quickly realized when I moved to Pilot Mountain that they were mistaken for the other sausage balls, you know the ones with bisquick and cheese. Anyway, this is what I grew up on. Mom still makes them every Thanksgiving and I love to make them around the holidays.
Pilot Mountain Sausage Balls1 lb. sausage 1 small pkg (8 oz) Pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing Mix 1 lb. bacon
Mix sausage and stuffing mix. You’ve got to get your hands in there and really mix it up! Form balls and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon. Place in a baking pan, preferably with a rack. Bake at 400 for approx. 45 min, turning over halfway through. Make sure bacon is cooked.
Take these to your next party and I bet you don’t bring home any leftovers! 🙂
