Savory Stuffing Balls Recipe @pinch

We love a twist on a holiday favorite. These stuffing balls are peppery, savory, and full of herb flavor in every bite. The texture reminds us of a sausage ball. They are pretty peppery, so if you don't like a lot of pepper cut in half. Serve with cranberry sauce or gravy, they make an awesome party appetizer. This recipe is also a fun alternative to normal stuffing at your holiday table. However you choose to serve them, you can't go wrong with these savory stuffing balls. They are scrumptious! I like stuffing, but it is not something I would ordinarily make except at holiday meals. However, a couple of weeks ago, I went to dinner at a local restaurant. Tired of mashed potatoes, I ordered stuffing balls with my roast chicken dinner. I liked them, so I have been experimenting with my own version. This is a combination that I like. I hope you do, too.
