Sausage balls

The day after Thanksgiving, we went over to my sister-in-laws house and we all brought appetizers and we had a really casual appetizer lunch. One of the things that my mom used to make, but I haven't had in a million years is sausage balls.

This is a really easy appetizer, in case you have any holiday parties to go to. It requires very few ingredients, little to know prep, and delcious results. Who can beat that?
Sausage Balls
  • 1 pound of ground pork sausage (such a Jimmy Dean's)
  • 2 cups of Bisquick
  • 1 bag of finely shredded cheddar cheese (I use mild)

This is the easiest part... Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and then just take (thawed) sausage and put it in a large mixing bowl. Then add the Bisquick. When you get it completely combined, add a little salt, ground black pepper and garlic power and mix until the seasonings are combined. Then, add the cheese a little at a time and mix until combined. Roll into balls and placed on a baking sheet that you've lined with parchment paper. Bake 18-20 minutes.

It's as easy as that! Just make sure that you break one of the balls open and check to make sure that the sausage is cooked all the way through. If it is, the others should be fine! Just let them cool and then you can pack them away in a tupperware!

These are always a big hit - wherever I take them. Hope you and your family and/or friends enjoy them as well!

Sausage balls are one of the rare things that I miss since I've become a vegetarian... Nana makes them for Christmas and I just may have some :-)
