Sausage Balls

We all grew up eating sausage balls. I'm telling ya, 4 ingredients and 10 - 15 minutes on the cook. It doesn't get any easier. You can eat these hot or cold. And non one can eat just one!

Prepare your smoker 
Prepare your pellet grill or smoker at 400 degrees. We used a Traeger with hickory in this recipe. This cook is so short and hot that any wood choice would be fine.

Prepare the Sausage Balls
In a large mixing bowl, knead together all ingredients thoroughly. It's going to seem dry, and like a lot of cheese. Just keep mixing it together and it will work. 

We love to add the optional jalapeños. The taste and beautiful contrast is great. This is an optional addition, and is not too hot. Adjust to your liking.

Scoop out and roll into 1" balls. I do this completely by hand.

Cook the Sausage Balls
Place the sausage balls on a greased sheet pan. Cook for ~12 minutes or until the cheese is crispy and the internal temp is at least 165 degrees. Use an IR Thermometer to nail the desired doneness.

Allow to cool and enjoy!
