Sausage Meatball Casserole

Sausage Meatball Casserole

I can’t count how many people have asked me what a sausage ball is. When I tell someone that I am bringing sausage balls to a get-together, I have to explain that they are simply meatballs made with sausage meat rather than plain ground beef. This recipe is a favorite to take to such gatherings and I often serve it with a caesar salad or a small side of pasta noodles.
