These gluten free sausage balls taste just like the classic – crunchy on the outside and a little spicy!
I think every single weekend for a year, when I ask Justin what I should make for the blog. He says, “SAUSAGEBALLSSAUSAGEBALLSSAUSAGEBALLS.” And I finally took his advice (so that he could take some to school). He has fond memories of them, as do many of us, probably. They were even brought on a road trip a few Christmases ago…I didn’t know if that was safe or not, but we must all have iron stomachs or something, because we were okay!
These are great for a party, for lunch, or even just a snack. I know they’re very popular around the holidays, because it can make a hearty, filling bite, and help meat go a long way. But, I know it’s spring, but I feel like there’s never a bad time for sausage balls, and if my husband asked me about making them one more time, I was going to lose it. Parties I can think of that are coming up: NBA Playoffs/Finals, Graduations, Baby Showers, Wedding Showers. They’re very versatile!!
When I was thinking about how I can make this quick, easy appetizer my own, I knew I wanted to incorporate fresh chives, and try and make it gluten free for you fine folks. It was surprisingly easy, thanks to gluten free baking mix! You can find some here on Amazon (affiliate link). It was even cheaper to get Bob’s Red Mill at my store, instead of getting gluten-free Bisquick!
Local Spotlight: I am SO happy, y’all. The farmers market is officially back and open every Saturday until it gets cold again. I was able to get local sausage from a brand new vendor, Prairie Creek Farms, and chives. The peach spread I used is also a local specialty, from Southern Okie! It gives it a nice sweet note, and helps bind all of the mixture together.
What kind of party do you have coming up?
