Sweet and Sour Sausage Balls

Leigh Culver


I was at a church yard sale and they were selling their cookbook. I have made this recipe several times and it's a hit. Thanks to the Grace Lutheran Church of Wenatchee, WA and Bonnie Landes who submitted to her church for the cookbook.

You can certainly cut this recipe in half. Also these freeze well.
