cups Bisquick™ Original Pancake & Baking Mix
lb uncooked bulk pork sausage
cups shredded cheddar cheese (16 oz)
cup grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
teaspoons chopped fresh parsley or 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Barbecue sauce or chili sauce, if desired
1Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease bottom and sides of 2 rimmed 15x10x1-inch baking pans.
2In large bowl, stir together all ingredients except barbecue sauce, using hands or spoon. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place 1/2 inch apart on pans.
3Bake 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pans halfway through bake time, until brown. Immediately remove from pan; transfer to serving platter. Serve warm with sauce for dipping.
What is sausage? Nothing more than finely chopped and well-seasoned meat; sausage choices are nearly unlimited—from pork to chicken and turkey. But all sausages depend on some degree of fat in the mixture, which gives it its succulence and delicious flavor.
Lightly wet your hands to roll the balls to prevent sticking.
Using a small (1 tablespoon) cookie scoop makes forming the Sausage-Cheese Balls a quick and easy task.
Since these are the ultimate party food, they’re worth planning ahead for. Roll them up and freeze on baking sheets until firm. Then plop them into resealable plastic freezer bags and store for up to 1 month. Bake as needed, no defrosting required, at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Offer a variety of dips when serving these up to guests. Try barbecue sauce, chili sauce, a mayo/yogurt dressing mixed up with a good sprinkle of garlic salt, lots of chopped fresh herbs and more Parmesan cheese, or a blend of Ranch dressing with a spoonful of basil pesto.
