Back in September, I shared a cherished family recipe with you — Betty’s Muppet Babies Sausage Balls. These spherical masses of deliciousness were a family staple in my household growing up, particularly on Saturday mornings, when my brother and I would scarf them down while watching our favorite cartoon, Muppet Babies.
But, sadly, when we made them recently for my Dad’s birthday while we were all on a family vacation, my brother couldn’t partake – he’s vegan. However, he sent word recently that the recipe can be adjusted to contain no animal friends (or Muppets) and still maintain its savory goodness. To adapt it to a vegan friendly version, first, see the original recipe. Then, substitute the cheese and sausage with Daiya cheddar-style cheese shreds and Lightlife Gimme Lean Ground Sausage. Cook for 45 minutes in 400-degree oven.
And presto, PETA-approved Sausage Balls!
