Sausage Balls

Reader Jerry wants hearty breakfast recipes and this one is about as hearty as they get.  I make these for breakfast or brunch but they could also be a cocktail party delight.  When I use them at a cocktail party, I include several types of dipping sauce.  If you are serving many at a Sunday […]
