These savory Sausage Cheddar Balls only use three ingredients and they are ridiculously easy to make! I made them for a potluck at work today and they were a hit. I especially love this recipe because you can make them the day before, as they reheat really well in the microwave.
Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined. Shape the mix into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 16 to 20 minutes. Don’t overbake them as they can get a little dried out. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If you’re making the day before, let the balls cool completely. Store in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave for approximately 3 to 4 minutes. When reheating, keep the balls in the slightly opened ziploc bag. The steam from the bag will make them extra moist and yummy.
Spray crockpot with PAM and put in sausage (if you use ground sausage, Jamie recommends putting pinches of the sausage into the bottom of the crockpot), onion, and bell pepper. Pour in the pasta sauce, stewed tomatoes, wine, oregano, basil, garlic salt, and pepper. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours (or on high for 3 hours) or until sausage is cooked. Serve over any type of pasta noodle.
