These sausage balls are made with sausage, rice and cheese. You can use hot sausage, the rice will cool it down some. You can use long grain/wild rice for added flavors. This can be made with well seasoned turkey or chicken sausage. When I worked these up I made about half of them coated with the flour/buttermilk/crumb crust and the other half with no battering. Both are great. Those battered had a nice crispy crust whereas the ones without had just a slight crisp on the outside. These are perfect for breakfast but are good any time.
