J Dub’s Spooky Sausage Bites are the perfect appetizer to serve at your next Halloween party or fall gathering. These bite size sausage balls will be a hit with both adults and kids.

You can store these sausage bites in an air tight container for several days, but they won’t last 24 hours so I wouldn’t even worry about it.
