Sausage Balls - Question on actually cooking them

Okay, so my daughter's friend gave me a super easy recipe of a 1-1-1 ratio for sausage balls. They taste great but they burn on one side when I put them on the pan so I was wondering if I could either deep fry them or if I could maybe bake them on my cookie cooling rack like I cook my wings when I bake them. Just looking for a way to avoid that brown patch on the bottom.

That's the issue. When I bake them, they get a hard flat brown spot on the bottom. I'm looking for a better method to avoid the hard spot that just ends up getting tossed. It's a lot of waste IMO to not eat the bottom of every sausage ball.

Bake them, but turn them a few times during the cooking process.

Maybe it's my pan then because I tried that and ended up with two and three hard brown spots that my daughter refused to eat. I used a Farberware cookie sheet. Is there something else? Cheap aluminum you toss afterwards? My stone that seems to like grease?

These are a must have for Sunday and I'd like to make them without having half of them end up in the trash.

I have a roaster that has three vessels that hold food and uses water to keep the contents warm. It keeps them nice and toasty during the game.

You could deep fry them I would think.
