Sausage Balls

These are a family tradition for Christmas morning at our house. They are so yummy and quick that sometimes I like to do them at other times during the year.

This is my personal preference on the recipe. Feel free to find a way to make it your own for your family.

Sausage Balls

3 cups Bisquick
1 lb breakfast sausage (turkey)
8-10 ox sharp cheddar cheese
1-2 tbsp Worchestershire sauce (opt)

Heat oven to 400°F degrees.
Using your hands mix until 1 large ball is formed and then roll into balls, no bigger than ping pong size. Place on baking sheet (with sides) and bake for approximately 15 min. Remove from oven and enjoy! These refreeze well once baked and taste best reheated in the oven.

The ones E and I made we mixed in a gallon zip bag so she could help mix. I then took it out and finished it off by hand. I did use a scoop to make the balls this time to keep my hands clean, but the hand rolled ones look better.

Other variations used by my extended family include:

half mild and half spicy pork breakfast sausage
adding a few dashes of Tabasco
