Sweet-Hot Sausage Meatballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: These good-tasting sausage meatballs seem to disappear before anything else on the table or buffet. They have a delightful tang with a bit of crunch from the water chestnuts. I've used the recipe when entertaining for over 20 years because it's so easy to do and comes out perfect every time. -Claire Stryker, Delta, Utah
