The 25 Days of Holiday Goodies Day 12: Sausage Cheese Bisquick Balls

25 Days of Christmas Goodies Button

Yup.  If you know anything about Bisquick, you’ve probably heard of and/or consumed several dozen (or hundreds) of these bad boys in your lifetime.  In my family growing up, they were a finger food staple.  My mom made ice cream buckets full of them for my sister’s wedding reception back in the 90s.

They are great as a breakfast food (meat, cheese, bread, after all) as well as snack and party food.  They also are really good with a wide variety of sauces (Josh and Muffin prefer ketchup, of course) or by themselves.

Even though some of you probably have this recipe memorized, I’m going to share it with you today.

Bisquick Sausage Cheese Balls

1 pound sausage, room temperature

4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

3 cups baking mix
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients.  Mix together and shape into walnut sized balls.  Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet.  Bake 12-15 minutes.  Serve hot.

Yup.  That’s it.  Only three ingredients.  And no, you don’t cook the sausage in advance.  The juices from the sausage serve as a binder.  The hardest part of this is getting the crumbly ingredients to stay together.  If you manage that, you’re golden.
