Saucy Venison Sausage Balls

I pinned this recipe over a year ago from The Daily Dish. Made a couple of changes like making my own meatballs rather than using frozen. These were a big hit at my fams early Thanksgiving.

3 lbs spicy venison ground sausage
2 10 oz jars apricot preserves
28 oz bbq sauce

Form sausage into balls, about 32. Place on cooking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Let cool slightly. Place in crock pot. In medium bowl combine preserves with bbq sauce.
Pour sauce over the meatballs. Heat on low for about 2-3 hours.
Load in car, drive 3 hours to moms. Plug crock pot back in, set on warm and watch how fast it's devoured! Enjoy!!

Menu Plan 11.21.14

Well half of last weeks plan didn't happen - unplanned trip to Abilene, time constraints and so on. So this week there will be a lot of repeats as well as a planned trip to Bastrop. My family is getting together this Saturday for an early Thanksgiving celebration. It will be a dinner celebration but due to the long drive, lunch is up in the air right now. I'm putting something down but it is questionable as to whether it will happen. So with that in mind here is the plan for the week. Hope it goes better than the last one.

Friday
Date Night

Saturday
Beef and Bean Taco Casserole with Guacamole (L) ?
Thanksgiving Dinner in Bastrop - Dishes I plan to make: Crockpot Meatballs*, Toasted Chickpeas*, Raw Beet Salad* and Simple Fudge. I may pare it down to two or maybe three, it will depend on what I have time for.

Sunday
Venison Backstrap with Roast Butternut Squash (L)
Sausage with Onion Rings

Monday
Meat and Potato Patties with Veggies (L)
YOYO

Tuesday
Honey Pecan Crusted Chicken with Spinach

Wednesday
Venison Chili with Cheddar Biscuits (L)
Corn Dogs with Fries

Thursday
Happy Thanksgiving!
