Sausage Cheese Balls

From Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op

<p>These delicious, bite-sized snacks are a party favorite and they&#8217;re easy to make. (Make it even easier on yourself by preparing ahead of time and freezing. On the day of your party, simply thaw and pop in the oven.) The jalapeno cheddar gives them a kick.</p>
