I had bought some ground sausage but had no idea what I was going to make with it. I figured that the meat would have a strong porky taste. So, I looked online and found this recipe and I’m glad I did. I took the finished meatballs over to my sons house to have it taste tested. It was approved. As always, I make modifications to most recipes. In this recipe I changed the dipping sauce from BBQ or chili sauce to a pasta sauce. My daughter in law made some pasta and a salad to accompany the meatballs.
