I have made this appetizer every Thanksgiving for the past three years now and it never disappoints. It is super simple to make and it tastes amazing. I personally love stuffing, but these appetizer balls bring it to a whole different level. They are sweet and salty delicious little bites and I won't judge you if you eat ten or more in one sitting. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
