Sausage Balls 5 Different Ways

I had a few friends over last night for a Pampered Chef party.  I decided to take the opportunity to  have a sausage ball tasting and try out some new recipes.  I served 5 different recipes – Turkey Sausage (my Mom’s recipe substituting turkey sausage), The Whiz sausage balls (my cousin’s recipe),  Maple Sausage (found a version on a blog somewhere), Italian Sausage (made this one up) and the original Bisquick recipe.  The overall favorite was the Cheese Whiz sausage balls!  Who would have guessed?!  Second place went to the Italian sausage balls.  We all had a hard time picking a favorite because they were all SO good.  After the tasting, we were all stuffed!  *The photos aren’t the best because I didn’t want to hold up the party to take photos!*

  1. My favorite recipes call for sage turkey sausage & dried crangerries with a little orange zest OR one with added cream cheese…will be trying your variations too…love these for a meal with a side salad too.

  2. You've got a lot of sausage balls to post this! (ha ha)

    For something so looked down upon in the culinary world, velveeta does do some good work, doesn't it?

  3. We love to use our friends as guinea pigs for tastings here at Almost Heaven South. I think it's the best way to find which you really prefer. Thanks for the great recipes – I saved them all.
