Jalapeno cheddar sausage breakfast balls are perfect for when you’re looking for a spicy start to your morning.
Add some spice to your breakfast with jalapeno cheddar sausage breakfast balls. The cheese in this recipe is delicious, but it does make the meat balls a bit more fragile when they are hot. Melted cheese just doesn’t have the binding ability cooled cheese does. For this reason make sure you are gentle with the meat balls when you flip them or transfer them to the baking sheet.
