Sausage Balls

So simple!  Takes awhile, but only three ingredients!
  • 3 cups of Bisquick ( sometimes has a coupon)
  • 16 oz. sausage - I use Frank Corriher's
  • 12 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
In large mixing bowl, pour in Bisquick, and pinch/add pieces of sausage, tossing a little as you go to coat with Bisquick.
Add cheese, and knead/mix till well blended.
Roll into small 1 inch balls; place on greased pan.
Bake at 375º for 16-18 minutes.
Freeze (on an ungreased pan) whatever you don't use. After freezing, transfer to a gallon ziploc bag.  Makes around 80 sausage balls.

Betty Crocker uses a few more ingredients, and sounds delicious!!!  I'm going to have to try this.
  • 4 c. (16 oz.) cheddar cheese instead of 12 oz.
  • ½ c. grated Parmesan cheese (2 oz.)
  • ½ c. milk
  • ½ t. dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1½ t. chopped fresh parsley OR ½ t. parsley flakes

ETA #2:  It tastes pretty much the same, maybe a LITTLE fluffier, but it's stickier to roll out.  It does make more.  I think we got 95 out of it.
