Sage and Onion Stuffing Balls

I never thought it was possible to have sage and onion stuffing balls without sausage meat, shoved up a turkey hole or drenched in meat juices. Well this year it became evident to me that sage and onion stuffing is actually able to perfectly function without animal input (well just my input but without me being served inside the food!). In fact, it was so easy without the additional complications and extras, that it sucks I never considered making it so simple in the past. So came about my creation of these wonderfully gluten-free vegan sage and onion stuffing balls.
