These sausage balls are great at room temperature, making them the perfect tailgating food. Let the balls cool completely, and then pack them between paper towels in a storage container to transport them to the game.

 

Ingredients

For the sausage balls:

  • 1 Cup cornmeal
  • 8 Ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1 Pound spicy sausage, ground
  • 3 Ounces cream cheese

For the Cabernet honey mustard:

  • 2/3 Cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 Cup Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs

Directions

For the sausage balls:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then spray parchment paper with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, stir cornmeal, cheddar cheese, salt and thyme together.

In a separate bowl, combine sausage and cream cheese with your hands. Add sausage mixture to cornmeal mixture and combine the two. Your dough will be dry and crumbly, and somewhat difficult to combine. Form 1-ounce balls and place on baking sheet one inch apart.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While the sausage balls are baking, make your Cabernet honey mustard.

For the Cabernet honey mustard:

Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan, bring to medium heat. Stirring often, cook for 20-25 minutes or until sauce has reduced by about half. Remove thyme sprigs, and serve in a bowl alongside sausage balls.

Enjoy sausage balls hot or at room temperature, serving with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon.
