(Traditionally, I’ve made the sausage balls only during the holidays, now I make them all year round and use them constantly.)
These are practically my own little delicacy. The secret to these really good sausage balls is delicious hand-made sausage. I get mine from the local butcher, who mixes it right there on his counter. It will make (or yes, break) your balls. Don’t save on sausage. Splurge.
Lay out a few bowls of sausage balls for satisfied guests and family from kickoff through overtime. Save a bowl in the kitchen for yourself.
This isn’t really a snack recipe. It’s popcorn. But I feel as if the stovetop part is getting missed; we’ve lost an appreciation for how good popcorn can be. I pop mine in a stovetop topper over a gas burner with a little sunflower oil. All it needs after is a bit of salt. Takes about the same amount of time as microwave popcorn, and tastes. So. Much. Better.
Roasted Salsa with Tortilla Chips
Good enough to eat with a spoon or pour over tacos/enchiladas/salads. Better with chips. This is the salsa of salsas, I say. Roasting brings out the sweetness and the best flavors of the ingredients. Dip away.
