Sausage Balls!

The holidays are coming upon us which means finger foods, fat, and sweets. I am hoping that my blog will keep up with these traditions and maybe add a few new ones. Many families have the tradition of making sausage balls. They are simple, quick, yummy, and delicious. They are great for family gatherings, holiday parties, quick snack, or brunch. Or, if you are like me, you can just make them and eat them for a Sunday afternoon snack while studying. 

2 cups Bisquick (If you are healthy, use whole wheat, or make your own)
1 lb cheese (Most cheese comes in an 8 oz bag. So, you need to buy two!)
1 lb  ground pork sausage (This is one cylinder roll, for those that are unfamiliar)

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, mix all your ingredients into a bowl. The goal is to get all the ingredients together in a large ball. This is easily done by kneading it together like dough. It may seem odd at first because their is not liquid to keep everything stuck together, but the sausage will not let you down!

Continue doing this until all the ingredients come together. It should look a little something like this...

Then, you will start rolling the mixture into small balls. They are about quarter-size spheres (sorry for the elementary math explanation). If you use the entire recipe it should make about 60 balls.

Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the sausage balls are golden brown. The cheese will be melted and the sausage will be cooked. Make sure they are done, no one wants a doughy sausage ball!
