I hope everyone is planning a wonderful Christmas and you have the gifts all wrapped and ribbons tied. Being with family and eating wonderous treats makes everything so much better. In my family, we have a tradition of making Sausage Cheese Balls — the easy way — and serving them up hot on Christmas morning.
3 cups of dry Bisquick
1 pound of grated cheese
1 pound of sausage (any degree of spiciness)
This recipe calls for no liquid.
Knead everything all together (This will take some time but keep mixing until it’s all integrated into a ball.) Your hand will get very tired.
Roll out the size balls you like and put them on a cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Cook at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. But check on them so you won’t overcook. Eat and Enjoy!
Do you hear those Jingle, Jangle Spurs? It’s the cowboys filing in to eat their share. Better hurry!
See you all in 2020!
