This recipe is a Southern classic appetizer! I bet these have been served at 80% of the pot lucks with which I have been involved. They are easy to make and oh-so-good, and there are just 3 ingredients! I use mild sausage, but if you like a little more kick, use hot!
1 lb pork sausage, mild or hot
3 cups baking mix (I used Bisquick)
4 cups grated Cheddar cheese, mild or sharp
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with your fingers. (I use plastic gloves so I don’t have sausage underneath my nails.) The mixture will be very crumbly. Form into 1 inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together.
Place the balls on the prepped baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown on top and bottom. I have found the best way to keep them warm is to put them in a slow cooker that has a “keep warm” setting on it. They will stay hot, but not dry out as much.
