    Today's experiment in food . Equal parts hamburger and hot Italian sausage . They have been baked and 5 are now in sauce destined for pasta .

    Can't beat home made burgers. You can tailor the ingredients to your preferences, like no restaurant can(or would want to).

    We prefer them fried. Never tried a sausage mix. Can’t wait for the pics!

    That should work out nicely...the beef will help temper the stronger flavor of the hot sausage without killing it. You can also use ground turkey to good effect...i've done 1/3 beef, 1/3 pork and 1/3 turkey for 'balls with nice success, too. The pork portion is generally ground sausage so it has some form of additional flavoring.

    I have some straight ground pork that I have used before with good results . I thought that I would give the hot stuff a try once . It worked nicely . I had my meal and it was good .

    Sounds delicious OP, I'm sorry to say that I have never made meatballs.

    I am not. Is that a requirement for meatball and sauce exchange?

    I put them in the Kamado to smoke for 2 hrs. Cook in sauce and that's the best smoked spaghetti ever.

    Certainly not . Where do I send the meatballs ? PM me . I have a styrofoam container and dry ice is rather simple . You may use my return address for the sauce .

    I must confess, I've never made them.
    I do keep the frozen ones on hand, and often microwave a few in a bowl with peas, beans, or whole kernel corn.

    My son’s wife uses Jimmy Dean sage sausage and hamburger half and half, don’t know if she adds any other spices. They are excellent. I’m sure your recipe is delicious.
