Cheddar Sausage Balls

I received this recipe from one of my friends from Seminary who is currently living in China, Kelly.

1 lb. fresh, ground spicy pork sausage
16 oz. pkg shredded Cheddar cheese
2-3 cups baking mix

1. Blend all ingredients together and shape mixture into walnut-sized balls.
2. Place on a sprayed, foil-lined cookie sheet.
3. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Serve hot.

Personal Notes: For our girls' joint birthday party I doubled the recipe and used 1 lb. spicy and 1 lb. mild sausage. I shredded my own mild cheddar cheese in the food processor (about 1.5 lb.) and added 5 cups of baking mix. It would be best to mix the sausage and cheese together first before adding the baking mix (Bisquick) a little at a time. It took me about 10 to 15 minutes to mix all three ingredients together to get a nice even consistency. The larger you roll the sausage balls, the longer they will take to bake through and they rise upon baking. Jeramy found that they were difficult to remove from the foil after baking.

These were a hit! Enjoy!
