This recipe is so good. Kitten I took you up on the option of adding 1/2 pound sausage meat - perfect.I used spicy Bratwurst. Baked balls were served with sweet asian chili sauce for our Sunday appetizer with  our Martinis- perfect. With the added sausage meat the recipe yielded 35 balls. The remainder are in the freezer (before I could get at them).   Just to add - I froze the left over balls and had some today with our Sunday Martinis - Just great - I left them out for 1 hour before baking, this time I added sweet Asian Chili sauce to the tops of the balls baked in 375 oven for 15 minutes - Perfect - another great Kitten recipe   Thanks
