Italian Sausage Meatballs

26 Sep

On a Friday night, like several other nights, we couldn’t decide on what we wanted for dinner. Being indecisive really sucks. Especially when you barely had anything to eat all day and you are suffering from a hunger headache and getting cranky. 🙂  Oh yeah, not a pretty sight. lol.  At last minute we decided on a semi-homemade thin crust pizza. I was just going to purchase the pillsbury thin crust dough. I had already thawed out a lb of ground Italian Sausage for one of the toppings.  Anyway, Bryan and I decided to take a trip to our local walmart because we needed to pick up some things. As usual, we spent longer than expected and more money than expected! That is always a issue when going into Walmart.

Long story short, I ended up throwing a Digiorno Pizza in the oven and that was dinner…. Say what? You want to know what happened to that thawed out ground Italian Sausage huh?  Well I couldn’t put it back in the freezer the next day,so I thought what can I do with this. Meatballs!! Yup! That’s what I will make. I didn’t want to make a whole meal so I figured a little appetizer would be perfect. 🙂 These meatballs are great for snacking or can even be used for a Meatball Sub or even Spaghetti. Enjoy! 🙂
