Fried Cheesy Sausage Balls

Fry-day: Cheesy Sausage Balls

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.

Some of the cheese leaks out but it solidifies when it hits the frying oil.Frozen Cheesy Sausage BallsAs 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
Filter Stand
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.
