Sausage balls to the rescue!


Sausage balls

OK, you've gotta take an appetizer to a holiday party & you have no idea what to bring. Here's one of our favorite quick & easy recipes from our friends Darr & Holly Oney.  The internet is full of sausage ball recipes, but this one is tried & true.

2 pounds of spicy sausage (we use our venison mix)
1.5 cups of Bisquick
4 cups of sharp cheddar cheese
3 tsp of minced garlic
1/2 cup onion (finely chopped)
1/2 cup celery (finely chopped)
 1 tsp of black pepper

Preheat oven to 375

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients and kneed with hands.  Form into 1" balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make a bunch and freeze some in packs for later.

Bake at 350 - 375 for 18 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.

tip: add some chopped Jalapeños for a little more bite.
