Sausage Balls

While my roots and heart are in New England (I grew up in Massachusetts & Rhode Island before moving to the middle of America), there are some tasty takeaways I got from Oklahoma that I still love to this day. Sausage balls definitely qualify as a keeper!

This is a recipe I got from Jenezuela's mom on my most recent visit there (for Jenezuela's wedding). It couldn't be simpler! These savory bites are great for breakfast, brunch, parties, snacks, anytime! I like them best with the spicy sausage, but you could use mild/sweet just as easily. And no, I don't want to know how many calories/carbs/fat grams are in these babies!

12 oz packaged sausage (ie the late, great Jimmy Dean's brand)

10 oz packaged Cheddar cheese

¼ c. water

2½ c. Bisquick mix

Brown sausage, but don’t fry until crisp. Chop cheese and melt into sausage in skillet. Add water and mix well. Pour into mixing bowl, then add Bisquick. Roll into balls, place on cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Remove from sheet, sprinkle with paprika or fresh chopped parsley if desired.
