Possibly the best tasting thing you’ll ever eat on a stick! Hearty sausage meatballs seasoned with Italian seasonings and Worcestershire® sauce, then simmered in a flavorful marinara sauce. Who says you can't make a meal out of them... and kids love ’em!

Sausage Meatball Bites

Directions

  1. Mix together, using your fingers, the Swaggerty's Farm sausage, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 cup minced parsley, salt, and pepper.
  2. Bring marinara sauce to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. Form the sausage mixture into approximately 1" meatballs (great job for the kids) and drop into the sauce to cook. Stir gently to coat meatballs. Cook for about 15 minutes.
  4. Arrange bread cubes on a serving platter. Top each with a meatball and some of the sauce, adding a slice of cherry tomato if desired, securing all with a skewer. Sprinkle finished "bites" with additional minced parsley and serve.

Notes

Kids and Adult kids love food on "sticks." These bites are fun to eat, can look elegant, yet super easy to make.
 
Meatballs can be made in bulk ahead of time. Just double recipe using 1 lb of Swaggerty's Farm roll sausage and freeze until ready to use.
 
A small square cut slice of cheese could be added on top of the bread cube before adding the meatball as well.
 
These are great if you are watching your waistline. You get all the tastes you love without over doing it! Good for late summer parties or family get-togethers.
