"These bite-size appetizers offer a nice change from the usual party fare," notes Karen Rolfe of Dayton, Ohio. "It takes a little effort to assemble them, but the shells can be made ahead and frozen to cut party prep time."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded carrot

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in carrot and water chestnuts.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine cornstarch and ginger. Stir in the broth, sherry or additional broth and soy sauce until smooth. Stir into sausage mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
