Once upon a time, my family and I were all home for the holidays. My parents had to go to a party for the evening, leaving us kids to fend for ourselves for dinner. Mom felt so bad for us that she made an entire crockpot of meatballs in bbq sauce, because children in their late 20’s are obviously unable to feed themselves. This led to us eating an entire crockpot full of meatballs in bbq sauce. What was such a happy day quickly took a turn for the worse, as I soon felt about as bad as one person with 2 quarts of meatballs in their stomach can feel. I spent the rest of the evening feeling terribly unpleasant and moaning softly from my fetal position on the couch, “Toooo many meeeeeaaatbaaaalllls….” I vowed then and there never to recreate that experience.
…until I found today’s recipe of the day. Ok, seriously, I would singlehandedly devour every cheesy meatball on that plate, smacking the hands of anyone that tried to get too close. They look positively delicious and the secret ingredient is Bisquick. Who knew?
Cheese & Garlic Sausage Balls
– recipe from Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary
1 (7.75 ounces)package Bisquick Complete Cheese-Garlic Biscuit mix
1 pound ground pork sausage (I used sage flavored)
1 cup sharp shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped chives (optional)
Oven to 350.
Let the sausage sit out for a half hour to come to room temperature. This makes it easier to mix. Combine the sausage and biscuit mix. Add in the egg and mix (with your fingers) to combine. Mix in the cheese and chives. Form into walnut size balls and place on a baking sheet lined with no-stick foil. Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve with dipping sauce of your choice.
