Whatcha Got Cookin' by Ellen Watts

 
 
 
 

This recipe was posted on Facebook by a friend from high school, and I thought it looked interesting.  I love sausage balls at Christmas, but why can’t we have them other times of the year?  These might be fun to share at a picnic or family get together.

 

 

 

“Here’s my recipe for Pimento Cheese Sausage Balls.
It’s super easy and makes plenty for sharing.”
 
 
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 pound pork breakfast sausage (I like Jimmy Dean or Swaggerty’s)
  • 12 oz. Palmetto Cheese pimento cheese of choice (or blend of cheeses)
  • 2 + 1/4 cup Bisquick
  • Dash of paprika + red pepper
 
Note:  If you don’t eat pork, you can substitute turkey sausage.  It works just as well!  If you’re using turkey sausage, add 1-2 tbsp oil to make up for the fat.  Also, the sausage is easier to work with if it’s not super cold.
 
 
TO MAKE THEM:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Add sausage and pimento cheese to a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine.
  3. Add Bisquick and spices (if using). Knead with hands until it’s all combined into a large ball.
  4. Scoop and roll into 1-inch balls.
  5. Place balls on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray, or lined with a silicone baking mat. You can keep them close together since they don’t spread.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until they’re golden brown on top.
  7. Store in air-tight container or zip-lock bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.
