Expert Tips

  • Bulk pork sausage is the raw meat that hasn't been stuffed into the casing. If you can't find it, you can buy raw sausages, slit the casing with a knife and remove the meat.
  • 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.
