Here is a simple recipe for cranberry sausage bites that are a perfect seasonal appetizer. It is another great idea for the New Year’s Eve buffet.
1 pound sweet Italian sausage
⅓ cup fresh cranberries
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese (or any substitute you would like)
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup flour (Any type you like)
Salt & pepper to taste
Chop your cranberries and shallots.
Preheat the oven to 350 degree and line a baking sheet with foil.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with your hands until the ingredients fully incorporated.
Roll the mixture into balls and place on the baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Serve with cranberry sauce for dipping.
Variation – Want it a little sweet, in addition to using the sweet Italian sausage add left over cranberry sauce or chutney.
