Sausage Stuffing Balls

I have yet to try a recipe from my girl Whitney Bond that I don’t absolutely love but when I cooked these up for my mock Friendsgiving, they were the hit of the party!

Here’s the thing about my Friendsgiving…I wanted all the recipes to be tailgate-friendly, meaning no need for utensils!! WAHOO!  So not only were these so tasty but what a great way to bring your turkey day favorite to the tailgate.


  • 1 lb pork sausage
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion (Whitney calls for a red onion but I swapped it out because I don’t love red onions)
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage (chopped)
  • 1 loaf or 6 cups potato bread (cubed)
  • 2 eggs (whisked)
  • ½ cup chicken broth


  1. Pre heat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook the sausage in a large skillet on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Once the sausage is cooked through, remove from the skillet and place in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Place the skillet back on the stove and add the butter.
  5. Once the butter is melted, add the celery and onion.
  6. Cook for 4-5 minutes, then add the crushed garlic, salt, pepper and sage. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat, and add the celery and onion mixture to the sausage.
  8. Add the bread and toss.
  9. Add the whisked eggs and chicken broth.
  10. Use your hands, or a large spoon, to mix everything together, then form into 14-16 medium-sized balls.
  11. Place the sausage stuffing balls in the oven and cook for 30-35 minutes.
  12. Enjoy!

Friendly tailgate tip…I topped these with adorable little football flags from Party City. And the football board is from The Royal Standard.  I cannot thank Whitney Enough and you can check out her recipe here since she’s the professional 🙂
