HOLIDAY SAUSAGE BALLS

I was asked to make Sausage Cheeseballs as an appetizer for a church function and knew I'd seen the recipe on Jimmy Dean Sausage, so went to buy the ingredients. Their recipe calls for using their hot variety which I don't like. It also calls for jalapeno peppers and it all sounded too spicy for me. So, I dumped their recipe and came up with my own. Whodathunk it would be something so DELICIOUS!! Hope you will try this recipe.
