I was going through an old family recipe book and came across this one for Deviled Sausage Balls.

Hard to narrow down exactly how old it is but based on the original author I’m going to guess around the 1930s.

I’m sure most of you assume that “deviled” is reserved for hard-boiled eggs.

In cooking, “deviled” refers to a preparation method where food, eggs, meat, or seafood, is seasoned with spicy or zesty ingredients.

The reason why I am calling this a classic recipe is that the modern version involves using ground sausage with a few other ingredients and shaping them like meatballs and baking them.

I’ve also seen this recipe where the balls are breaded and deep-fried in oil. I think I will stick with this classic recipe for now.

You can substitute Italian Sausage for Chicken Sausage, Pork Sausage or even plant-based Vegetarian Sausage like Tofu sausages. The possibilities are endless!

Use pre-cooked sausage for this recipe to make it even easier. After you slice the sausage you simply throw everything into the skillet to simmer.

I like to serve this dish over a bed of white rice but you can also serve it with some pasta.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Deviled Sausage Balls recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Italian Sausage, Chili Sauce, Water, Light Brown Sugar, White Vinegar, Ground Dry Mustard, Yellow Onion and Green Bell Pepper.

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage. Drain any excess juices.
  2. Add the chili sauce, water, brown sugar, white vinegar and dry mustard. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and green bell pepper and continue to cook until the mixture thickens.
