Cheddar Sausage Balls Recipe

This time of year offers all sorts of delicious foods! From desserts to savory dishes, food is what brings us all together at the holiday table.

If you are anything like me, you love to cook for your loved ones and use this time to really make those dishes extra special. But, what makes those dishes special? How do they go from good to GREAT recipes?

For me, a great recipe is one that has a lot of flavor. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be cooked for several hours, have dozens of steps to create or includes expensive ingredients. Nope, it just means that the ingredients that you do choose to use are good ones, it’s properly seasoned and cooked with love. 😃

So, in celebration of this special time of year, I have put together a delicious and super easy recipe that is just perfect for holiday gatherings. Warning, though, they are hard to stop eating!
