Expert Tips

  • To add a little kick (especially if you use sausage that's not spicy), add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce.
  • You can make the sausage cheese balls ahead. Just place on pan, cover with foil and reheat in the oven at 350°F until heated through.
