Ingredients
  • 1 package Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage
  • 25 mini mozzarella balls (about 1 quart-sized container)
  • 1 bunch basil
  • Marinara sauce, for dipping
  • Toothpicks, for serving
Preparation

Place the sausage in a large, high-sided skillet. Pour water over sausages until just covered. Put the pan on the stove and turn the heat on high. Cook the sausages until all the water has evaporated from the pan. Once the water has evaporated, add some oil to the pan to brown the sausages. Once browned, remove from pan. Let the sausage rest.

Slice each sausage on a diagonal, into 5 pieces.


On each toothpick, first place a mozzarella ball then a leaf of bail and then a piece of sausage. Place onto a platter with warm marinara dipping sauce alongside.
