These little appetizers are a big hit at parties. It seems they’ve been around for ages. So long, in fact, some might consider them old-fashioned, but all that really means is that they’ve stood the test of time. They’re always among the first things to disappear from the table. Bonus! They can be frozen before or after baking!
Sausage Cheese Balls
2 cups Bisquick
1 lb ground spicy pork sausage, room temperature
10 oz shredded medium cheddar cheese, room temperature
4 Tbsp water, as needed
spicy mustard, for dipping
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Break ground sausage into chunks. Mix in the Bisquick, cheese, cheddar and 2 Tbsp water. I use a stand mixer but it can be done by hand as well. Continue until the mixture holds together and there are no unincorporated ingredients in the bottom of the bowl. If the mixture isn’t coming together add more water (or hot sauce) 1 tablespoon at a time.
- Shape the mixture into balls, rolling in your hand to smooth.
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Place sausage balls on the pan. They should not touch.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer the sausage balls to a serving tray and serve with spicy mustard.
