Holiday Sausage Balls With a Healthier Twist

by Rhonda Wylie on November 22, 2013

Sausage BallsSausage balls are a staple in the south during the holidays. They are so delicious and easy to make. I usually make mine ahead of time and freeze.  This year I started thinking of healthier alternatives than using Bisquick. I had already bought a whole wheat baking mix, so I decided to try it. Also, being the clutter person I naturally am, I could not find my old recipe, so I just made it up. I was amazed at how great they turned out. Later I want to try substituting turkey sausage for pork sausage, but I want to try them out, before I make them for my guests for the holidays. However, substituting turkey for pork sausage would obviously be another way you could make them healthier.

For those wanting to avoid preservatives or processed meat, I used the J.C. Potter brand with great results.
