Spicy Sausage & Cheese Balls
Every Christmas we have Sausage & Cheese Balls around my house. They are a stable on Christmas Eve Morning – but also make a great appetizer. It combines some of my favorite things!
But with this recipe I took a standard Sausage & Cheese Balls recipe and kicked it up to a whole, new level by adding some spice and getting them out on the smoker.
For starters I trade the regular sausage for hot sausage. Then I added Fresno Peppers, Killer Hogs AP Rub and cream cheese.
Then instead of cooking them in the oven, we got them on cast iron and got them on the Traeger Smoker. You can cook this on any pit, you just need to hold it steady at 400 for 20-25 minutes. And I like to flip the sausage balls halfway through the cook so they get brown on all sides.
And to really take it to a whole, new level, I like to serve it with some Captain Rodney’s Peach BBQ Sauce for dipping!
But I do have to warn you… If you are serving these at a party, make sure you make plenty… they seem to disappear fast!
