Spicy Sausage Cheddar Meatballs

Spicy Sausage Cheddar Meatballs

This recipe is perfect party food served with warm marinara sauce. It can also be made into a family meal as part of meatball sandwiches or served with pasta.

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound grated Original Herkimer® Aged Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 pound loose spicy sausage meat
2 eggs

Instructions:

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, butter, garlic and cayenne. Set aside.
In a second large bowl, use your hands to mix together the cheese, sausage and eggs until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix for several minutes to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
Pinch off about 1/4 cup of the mixture and roll into 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Arrange the meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve hot.

Yield: 36 meatballs

Save Time & Make Ahead: You can prep this recipe in advance. Follow through the step of forming the meat mixture into balls, then arrange them on a baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, store in plastic bags. Cook frozen meatballs as directed, but increase oven time to 35 minutes.

Variation: Use Italian hot sausage and add ½ cup parmesan or romano cheese for Spicy Italian Meatballs.
