Bisquick Sausage Balls

In my tips for working moms post, I mentioned that I make and freeze sausage balls for the kids’ breakfasts. I had a couple requests via twitter for the recipe for them.

A few things about them:

1. It’s not my recipe. It uses Bisquick so it’s probably a Bisquick recipe originally. There are variations on it, but it works for me.

2. I really don’t like calling them sausage balls. I mean, they are, but I wish there was a less tacky sounding name. It’s funny when reed walks in the kitchen in the morning and says “my balls, mama!” haha!

Sausage Balls
2 cups Bisquick
1lb sausage (you can use any kind – turkey sausage, hot, mild, regular, whatever floats your boat)
1 – 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese (again whatever strikes you – mild, sharp, etc)
1/2 cup milk (not all recipes call for this, but I think without a little bit of liquid, they don’t do well)
Sprinkle of garlic salt (don’t have to do this but I like what it adds)

Like I said, there are SO many variations of this recipe. There’s one out there with cream cheese in it and while they were good, I didn’t think they were good enough for the extra added calories, personally.
I like to use my stand mixer to mix all the ingredients. Throw it all in the mixer, turn it on until it’s all well blended.

Spray your baking pans with cooking spray. I also like to spray my cookie scoop that I use to portion it out because otherwise it’s a little work getting them out.

I made a double batch this time and was able to make 82. Bake at 375 for about 18 minutes.

When they are finished, I just let them sit for a while and cool, then I put them in a Ziploc and freeze. We pull them out and heat them in the mornings and they are even good for on the go!
