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.

How to Make Sweet and Sour Sausage Balls


  1. Mix together sausage, eggs, and bread crumbs. Shape mixture into walnut-sized balls. Saute in frying pan until browned on all sides. Drain.
  2. Combine catsup, brown sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce. Pour over sausage balls and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot (I put them in a crock pot to keep them hot).
  3. If made ahead, refrigerate or freeze sausage balls in sauce. Reheat in a 350* oven for 20 minutes.
