Food Friday: Sausage Cheese Balls

Yay! I am up and blogging again. We have been without internet/phone since last Friday and just got it back yesterday. Our internet/phone was out since I switched from AT&T to Magic Jack.MJ transferred our phone number over, however, before I could order the “internet only” plan from AT&T once the number transfer was complete, AT&T shut off our internet and phone! Aaaaack! Once we have been using MJ for awhile, I’ll do a review of it. So far so good.

As mentioned before, every month at work we have a birthday breakfast and this time around I made sausage balls. Sometimes sausage balls can be quite dry but these turned out really well! We had some venison sausage in the freezer and I used that. I didn’t use all the ingredients called for (no onions, red pepper, or s&p since the sausage was zippy to start with). So here goes, recipe adapted from the wonderful blog La Petite Chef.

Sausage Cheese Balls
Ingredients: (makes 6 dozen)
• 2 LB Sausage, Venison Sausage
• 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
• 2.5 cups Bisquick
• 1 small onion, chopped
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1 TBL crushed red pepper
• 1 tsp Chili powder
• Salt-n-pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 375F.
2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Form into 1 inch balls (this is where you could freeze them for later use).
4. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
5. Cook 15-20 mins. until golden brown and cooked.
Also, freeze uncooked to use at a later date, but freeze cooked to use within a few days in a crock-pot.

Have a great weekend everyone! We’re going to IKEA tomorrow since kids eat free. YAY!
