Southern Sausage & Cheese Balls
The Perfect Appetizer -
Today is the kick off of #MarchMadness. Spring is in the air, basketball is on the tube, and the smell of sausage aroma is filling the house. Does it get any better?
These sausage balls are simple, non-greasy, moist and delicious. What makes them extra delicious? Dip them in some good 'ole #smuckers red plum jam. I was raised on red plum jam, my husband was raised on red plum jam, and I have passed down the love of this great jam to my kids. I have my co-worker's addicted to this great taste as well. I'm highly allergic to strawberries so that is out of the question in our household. My family says this red plum jam is the best! What makes these sausage balls so good is they are moist. Who wants dry sausage balls? The trick to making them moist, non-greasy and scrumptious is adding 1/2 cup of milk to the mixture. The milk keeps them moist and doesn't dry out the Bisquick.
Below is the simple recipe:
1 pound of Jimmy Dean sausage ( I like mild - I'm a light weight when it comes to spicy)
3 cups of Bisquick
1/2 cup milk - (I use 2 percent milk)
1 small bag or 1 -1/2 cups of Kraft SHARP cheddar cheese -- (delicious - brings out the cheese taste)
1 Tablespoon of Lowry's Garlic pepper
Smuckers Red Plum Jam for dipping
Pre-heat oven to 350 Dregrees
Put the 1 pound mild sausage in large mixing bowl
Add in the 3 cups of Bisquick, 1/2 cup milk, 1-1/2 cups of Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese and mix together well. Roll in to balls and place on lined cookie sheet (large)
Sprinkle the garlic pepper on top of the rolled sausage balls
Place the lined cookie sheet of sausage balls in oven and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 25 minutes until they are golden brown and sausage is non-pink in middle.
Serve with plum jam for dipping! ENJOY!!!! P.S. I used my @serveiteasy utenils to easily serve these yummy sausage ball appetizers. These are the perfect utensils. Check them out at: https://www.serveiteasy.com
