Today I'm going to share one of my favorite recipes. This also happens to be one of my husband's favorites, too! I usually only make these around the holidays and then maybe once or twice throughout the rest of the year for special occasions. There are a few different ways to make sausage balls, but this is by far our favorite...and it's really simple!
What you'll need:
1lb of sausage (we like Tennessee Pride sausage the best!)
2 cups Bisquick
4 cups sharp cheddar cheese
**Set the cheese and sausage out about 15-20 minutes before you start so that it is at room temperature when it's time to start mixing everything. This will help when mixing it together and keep your hands from freezing!**
- Preheat oven to 350
- Mix all the ingredients together by hand, this usually takes a good 5 minutes or so. You will want to make sure everything is in one big ball. If you still have cheese or bisquick at the bottom of your bowl then you need to keep mixing! It should look like the picture below once you are done mixing everything together.
- Once it is mixed together well, then spray your pan with some cooking spray, and start rolling them into balls and place on the pan.
- Depending on your oven, they should bake anywhere from 25-30 minutes. Just watch them, once they start turning brown you'll know they are done!
And that's it! Very simple and they are even great reheated. Growing up we always made a big batch the day we decorated for Christmas and I have carried that over to my own little family. It's such a fun tradition!
