Winter Wonderland

C & I woke up to around 5 inches of snow on the ground this morning.  I am not the biggest fan of snow, but I am thankful for snow instead of ice like some other areas received.  It is a beautiful morning if you don’t have to get out in it.  I took a few photos from our doors this morning and we might get out to get a few more pictures this afternoon.  I guess that depends on if we feel brave enough to get out in the cold to walk.  Here are a few…

Sausage Balls

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.
