1 bottle of barbeque sauce (any type)
2 pounds ground meat (hamburger, ground round or minced steak)
2 pounds hot sausage meat
3 large eggs
2 medium onions (finely chopped)
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 small bell pepper (finely chopped)
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste (or crushed red pepper to taste)
cup fresh parsley (finely chopped)


In a mixing bowl combine eggs, onion, peppers, parsley and seasonings as desired. Blend well with a fork or wooden spoon. In a separate mixing bowl combine both meats and bread crumbs by hand. Make sure all items are thoroughly blended by kneading the items together by hand. Add the contents of the first bowl to the meat mixture and continue to mix by hand until all ingredients are combined and the mixture possesses the same consistency throughout.

Shape sausage balls by rolling small or medium sized portions by hand. Place each sausage ball on a baking sheet if preparing in the oven or set aside to fry in a large skillet.

Pre-heat oven to 350 and bake sausage balls for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Or place sausage balls in a skillet with 2 tablespoons cooking oil over medium heat and cook until golden brown, approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Be careful not to overcook meat during either method of preparation.

Pour barbeque sauce in a crock pot or covered casserole dish. To prepare in the Crock Pot select the low setting and add the pre-cooked sausage balls now. To prepare in the oven add sausage balls to the covered casserole with the Barbeque sauce and heat through in a 350 pre-heated oven for 45 to 55 minutes.

Sausage balls may be frozen and thawed for use at a later time or refrigerated for up to 2 days prior to preparing with the Barbeque sauce. Preparing the sausage balls in the Crock Pot simplifies serving time and makes a great addition to any feast or game day activity.
