George Jones

Honored w/ Sausage Balls

5/5/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0503_george_jones_balls_getty_article George Jones is being honored with sausage ... lots and lots of sausage ... TMZ has learned.

Turns out, Jones wasn't just a country music legend -- he was also a huge fan of breakfast meat -- and even owned a sausage company sold locally through restaurants in Tennessee.

After he passed away, one of the restaurants that serves Jones' sausage decided to honor the singer's memory ... with a humongous meat event in George's honor.

The result? Brooks Shaw's Old Country Store in Jackson, TN whipped up more than 1,000 sausage balls -- George's own creation and favorite breakfast snack. 

The store even put together a batch for his widow Nancy.

The recipe is really quite simple -- mix together Jones' sausage, Bisquick, cheese, and milk ... then cook 'em for about 10 minutes.

What a bunch of arrogant morons. No one said he created them, AND just because someone has never crawled out from under their rock, they need to realize recipes can vary. Milk, water? Cream cheese..... Etc. NEWSFLASH...... Yours isn't the only way to cook, if it was there would be no need for recipes. Everyone would make the same dish.
