How to Make Sausage Ball and Dipping Sauces

Sausage Balls are a delicious appetizer that is popular at parties or snacking on before a meal. I have included a Mustard-Mayo Dipping Sauce and a Curried Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce that is yummy for dipping. These tasty dipping sauces are also great with chicken wings, chicken strips or other appetizers.

Ingredients needed for Sausage Balls:
1 pound bulk ground sausage, mild or hot
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
3 cups biscuit mix
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon melted butter

Directions for making Sausage Balls:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Step 2: Grease or spray a baking sheet.
Step 3: In a large skillet, brown the sausage with celery and onion; drain well.
Step 4: Combine sausage mixture with the baking mix, egg, cheese, and butter.
Step 5: Mix well; form into balls about 1 inch in size.
Step 6: Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven on lightly greased or sprayed baking sheets for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned.
This recipe makes about 36 1-inch appetizers.

Mustard-Mayo Dipping Sauce

Ingredients needed for Mustard-Mayo Dipping Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
2 to 3 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon dill weed

Directions for making Mustard-Mayo Dipping Sauce:
Step 1: Combine mayonnaise, yellow mustard, Dijon mustard and dill weed; mix well.
Step 2: Chill to blend flavors.
Serve with sausage balls or similar appetizer.
Makes about 1 cup of dip.

Curried Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce

Ingredients needed for Curried Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup pineapple or apricot preserves
1/2 teaspoon curry powder, or to taste

Directions for making Curried Mayonnaise Dipping Sauce:
Step 1: Combine mayonnaise, pineapple or apricot preserves and curry powder; mix well.
Step 2: Chill to blend flavors.
Serve with chicken wings or fried chicken strips, sausage balls, or other appetizer.

Add a little less fruit preserves or a little more mayonnaise if the dip is too sweet for your taste.
