Sausage, potato bread, celery & sage are combined for a little taste of Thanksgiving all rolled up in these Sausage Stuffing Balls, perfect as a side dish or party appetizer!
Finally, the most popular dish at my Superbowl Party gets a post on the blog!
Not only are these sausage stuffing balls a delectable crowd favorite, they’re also super easy to make!
- 1 lb pork sausage
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3 stalks celery (chopped)
- 1 cup diced red onion
- 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp fresh sage (chopped)
- 1 loaf or 6 cups potato bread (cubed)
- 2 eggs (whisked)
- ½ cup chicken broth
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Cook the sausage in a large skillet on the stove over medium heat.
Once the sausage is cooked through, remove from the skillet and place in a large mixing bowl.
Place the skillet back on the stove and add the butter.
Once the butter is melted, add the celery and onion.
Cook for 4-5 minutes, then add the crushed garlic, salt, pepper and sage. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Remove from heat, and add the celery and onion mixture to the sausage.
Add the bread and toss.
Add the whisked eggs and chicken broth
Use your hands, or a large spoon, to mix everything together, then form into 14-16 medium-sized balls.
Place the sausage stuffing balls in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes.
Mmmm Thanksgiving dinner in the form of a delicious appetizer or side dish!
I’ve used both store-bought bread and homemade rustic potato bread to make this recipe, and they both work well!
I’ve served these sausage stuffing balls as an appetizer at my annual Birthday Christmas Cocktail Party and Superbowl Party each year for a while now, and they’re always a huge hit!
I also served them at Friendsgiving last year as a side dish, and once again, huge hit!
Moral of the story, these sausage stuffing balls are always a hit 😉
