The year or more, we were eating totally ketogenic, this recipe for spicy keto sausage balls was my absolute go to for anything that required breadcrumbs. I would make meatloaf & meatballs with it. Also, it makes the best stuffed mushrooms! To clarify, those stuffed mushrooms were better than any wheat version I ever made.
As a result of these spicy keto sausage balls, I was even able to make the only successful gluten free version of a family favorite… my stuffed artichokes. Every other attempt I have ever made at this dish gluten free totally missed the mark. That’s because I have never been able to find gluten free breadcrumbs. Or at least ones that don’t make everything a weird gelatinous mess! My stuffed artichokes appetizer is part of our Family’s Christmas Eve Tradition. We have a complete Italian feast in honor of my Maternal Grandmother Lilian. It was her stuffed artichoke recipe. I still use the spicy keto sausage balls to make them gluten free.
Lastly, this spicy keto sausage ball recipe makes a great grab & go breakfast. Especially if you also have a hard boiled egg or two to go with it.
