Flavorful Sausage Balls
I whip up a batch of these meatballs in a matter of minutes. They're great for busy days when you need something fast that's full of flavor. But we like them so much, I make them even on days I have time to spare.—Olive Lamb, Cushing, Oklahoma

We didn't care for this recipe but I can't put my finger on exactly what we didn't like.

Made this several times. We like them with italian bread crumbs used in the recipe.
