Betty’s kitchen Cocktail Sausage Meatballs in Sauce REcipe Video



Betty demonstrates how to make Cocktail Sausage Meatballs in Sauce. This is great for an appetizer or party, also for potluck dinners. The meatballs should be served warm, and you may want to double or triple the recipe and keep the meatballs on LOW in a slow cooker while they are being served.


1 pound hot or mild pork sausage, cut into chunks
2 eggs, well-beaten
1/3 cup herb-seasoned stuffing mix
½ teaspoon rubbed sage
½ cup water
¼ cup ketchup
¼ cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar

In a large bowl, use a mixer on medium speed to blend together 1 pound hot or mild pork sausage, 2 beaten eggs, 1/3 cup herb-seasoned stuffing mix, and ½ teaspoon rubbed sage until well blended and smooth. Shape into approximately 2 dozen 1-inch balls. Brown sausage balls in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drain sausage balls on paper toweling. Pour drippings out of skillet and discard. Wipe skillet clean with paper toweling.

To the skillet, add ½ cup water, ¼ cup ketchup, ¼ cup chili sauce, 2 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Stir until well-combined. Return cooked sausage balls to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and place a sheet of aluminum foil loosely over top of skillet.

Simmer 20 minutes, or until sauce thickens, stirring every 5 minutes. Pour into a nice serving dish and serve immediately or refrigerate or freeze. When ready to serve, reheat and place in crockpot on LOW to keep meatballs and sauce warm while serving. I hope you enjoy this recipe! –Betty 🙂
