Cheesy Hot Sausage Bites

Highly portable and highly addictive, these bite-sized cheesy-sausage morsels are the perfect one-handed party app or on-the-go power snack.



  • Heat oven to 400.
  • Combine every ingredient except Mozzarella cheese into a large bowl. Gently combine using both hands and massaging until every ingredient comes together.
  • Roll about one tablespoon of meat mixture into a ball. Place each ball onto a non-stick baking mat on a baking sheet. Be sure there is adequate space between each meatball bite (about one inch).
  • Top each meatball bite with a touch of Crystal Farms Shredded Mozzarella cheese, about four to six shreds. Bake at 400 degrees for about twelve minutes, or until fully cooked.
  • Remove from oven and allow to set for 1-2 minutes. Slide a toothpick into the top of each bite, and place each meatball onto a platter for serving.
  • Serve hot!
