Mmmmm, Mmmmm, good!  Every fall these sausage balls find their way back into our lives.  So quick and easy!  A perfect Saturday afternoon football snack.  They even reheat well for breakfast the next day.  You can't beat that!

Over the last few months I have been reading labels and trying to eliminate high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils from our diet to become a little bit healthier.  Wow those two ingredients are in everything!  I bet you are scratching your head and thinking sausage balls and healthier lifestyle in the same post, really!?!  I know I know!  I could argue that while high in fat sausage and cheese are real foods :-).  Anyways,  every little change counts, right?  So I was really shocked to see that Bisquick has partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or cottonseed oil.  REALLY????  Why?  All in the name of shelf life I suppose.   So in the future I will be reading up on how to make my own biscuit mix.  If you have a recipe for homemade biscuit mix PLEASE email me! I beg you :-)!

In the meantime here is the classic sausage ball recipe.


Here's what you'll need:
1 pound of your favorite ground sausage.  We like it hot.
3 cups of Bisquick (in the future homemade biscuit mix)
2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

Optional add in - 1 can diced green chilies or diced jalapenos

Throw all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together with your hands.

Roll pecan size balls and place on a lightly greased baking pan.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool slightly and dig in!
