Sometimes, simple is best. This Fry-day, I’m taking some pre-made cheesy sausage balls and throwing them in the deep fryer. That’s it. I like this one cause you can premake and freeze a bunch of sausage balls and just fry a few at a time for a meal.
Here’s the finished balls. The crust is much crisper than when I baked the balls. Some of the cheese leaks out but it solidifies when it hits the frying oil.As you can see, I premade a bunch of cheesy sausage balls and just threw them into a ziplock bag. Just make sure they’re separated when you throw them into the freezer so they don’t clump together.

|DeLonghi Deep Fryer
If you follow the blog, you know that I’ve gotten a little obsessed lately with my Deep Fryer to the point where I post a weekly Fry-day article. I had one of these in college and it always made me feel guilty using it. I feel so liberated that there are all sorts of keto friendly fried foods like nuggets, wings and brussels sprouts!
|Cone Filters, 50 Pack
To keep your frying oil clean, you really need to filter it on a regular basis. Fryers will come with one or two filters in the kit but they run out fast. This 50 pack will keep you going for well over a year
Use this stand in conjunction with standard cone filters to easily filter your oil. This system is in place of the filtering method that comes with your fryer.
