Baked & Breaded Sausage & Rice Balls with Marinara Dipping Sauce

These gems are so easy and delicious to make. I use 8 ounces lean crumbled pork sausage, 1-1/2 cups cooked brown or white rice, seasoned bread crumbs. After thoroughly cooking/browning sausage crumble, drain excess grease and place into a large mixing bowl, add cooled cooked rice of  your choice, add one teaspoon garlic salt and a few dashes of black pepper, mix well. Using clean hands form balls and roll into breaded seasoned crumbs.

Place onto a rimmed baking sheet pan and put into a hot 400 F oven, bake until golden brown. Warm a side of marinara sauce and serve.

Yum!
