About this recipe
These bites are the epitome of comfort food. Each bite is loaded with cheesy, meaty goodness! We have put plates of these bites out at family gatherings and are always astounded at how fast they disappear. No one can resist them! They’re delicious in all their forms – fresh off the grill, at room temperature, served with a creamy dip, marinara sauce…they are so versatile and perfect for snacking. Being the good Italian girls we are, we certainly love a good arancini, but we think these bites would give them a run for their money!
375g of kielbasa, finely chopped
2/3 cup of fresh parsley, finely chopped

2. Form into patties, using a half-cup measuring cup to ensure they’re all uniform in size.
3. Grill in a preheated grill at 400°F (medium heat in the centre, high heat on the end, and OFF underneath the tray of bites), until nicely browned, approximately 25
