"These were very good, but a bit heavy and greasy. I think next time I would make 24 balls so they would be more bite-sized and appetizer-ish. But the flavor is terrific; they are delicious!"

"This recipe does earn those 5 stars. They are cheesy, moist and delicious. Love the little crunch surprise from the celery.

Mixture is great to work with. Bake time is right on."

"Made these for a party at the Moose lodge. They went over great. Made recipe using 2 lbs. of Jimmy Dean sausage. Then made another using 2 lbs. of italian sausage. Every body raved about both."
