This recipe is from my late mother - Irene Savko Miller - and was always a huge hit with people.

Buy one or more pounds of either hot or mild Italian sausage. Allow to come to room temperature (for food safety reasons, do not let it sit out too long), form into small balls and brown in skillet until browned on all sides. Do not crowd the pan or the balls won't develop a nice brown crust. (A combination of hot and mild works very well too.)

PLEASE NOTE: They will not be cooked all the way through at this point!

Place browned sausage balls onto a cookie sheet and put into the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees to complete the cooking process.

Serve slightly warm with a container of toothpicks and a bowl of unsweetened applesauce onto which you have sprinkled a fairly good quantity of cinnamon hearts. The sausage balls may be dipped into the applesauce and then eaten. Yum.

People love these and they're an easy treat to serve at your next festive gathering.
