Sausage Cheese Balls

sausageballs no bisquick

I love these for a quick lunch served with some fruit or to take with us somewhere. With the quick mix made ahead of time there is very little work — even when I make the sausage homemade (I’ll be sharing that recipe next month on Modern Alternative Mama). I’m starting to plan for an emergency food bag in the freezer and I believe I’ll put some of these into it as well.

2.5 cups Homemade Baking Mix**

1lb breakfast sausage (not cooked)

8 oz cheddar cheese



Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Roll into 1 inch balls by first squeezing so the stick together and then rolling in between your hands. Place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. It makes 3-4 dozen.


**If you don’t have quick mix you can substitute 2.25 cups flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 tspn baking powder.
