Since marrying my husband I have learned how to make several dishes that I never knew how to make growing up, like sweet tea. It wasn’t until I met my husband that I found out people ate gravy over their rice. I thought gravy was only for mashed potatoes! I quickly learned otherwise.
Another food that I never heard of before meeting my husband was sausage balls. They are basically a requirement at any gathering where finger food is served. But we also have them as part of our regular menu rotation here at the house. They are great served with eggs and fruit for breakfast. And they are equally as good for supper! When I make them for the three of us, I cut the recipe in half, and that is plenty for just us. If I am taking them somewhere, I like to put them in the crock-pot on low after they are cooked.
I used to use the Bisquick recipe, but since cutting back on the grocery budget, I quit buying Bisquick and instead use this recipe.
4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 lb. sausage (We like to use sage flavored.)
1/4 c. milk (optional)
Add the cheese, flour and salt to a bowl and stir together.
Add the sausage to the dry ingredients and use your hands to incorporate all of the flour mixture with the sausage. This will take a few minutes and some elbow grease!
If you are having a hard time mixing in the dry ingredients, add a little bit of milk to help it all stick together. If I’m in a hurry, I will use milk because it helps the ingredients mix together faster.
Once all ingredients have been mixed well, roll into small balls about an inch wide. I like to use my 1 inch cookie scoop so that they are all uniform.
Place on a non greased pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
