Amish Sausage Balls

A versatile Pennsylvania Dutch recipe.

This Pennsylvania Dutch recipe for Amish Sausage Balls is so versatile! Whether as a crowd-pleasing appetizer or as a robust main dish, the Amish country flavors come through as loud and clear as the sound of a horse and buggy coming down a country road.

Yields: 26 to 28 balls

Cooking Time: 30 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 pound Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar 

What To Do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine sausage, bread crumbs, onion, and egg; mix well then form into 1/2-inch balls.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil; brown sausage balls 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over sausage balls, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until no longer pink in center. Serve immediately.

Note

  • These are traditionally served over rice or curly noodles. However, we also found these perfect as an appetizer served on toothpicks.
  • If you want to make these ahead of time, that's fine. Just reheat on a baking sheet in a 250 degree oven.
