Bite Size Sausage Balls

This is an oldie but a goodie and perfect for parties.  I use really good cheese and grate the cheese myself – I think it makes a big difference.

  • 10 ounce block of sharp cheddar cheese (Pre-grated cheese is much drier,  so I grate my cheese.)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 cups Pioneer Buttermilk Baking Mix
  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 cup milk

Mix all ingredients well.  Form dough into bite sized balls.  Another trick to making moist sausage balls, don’t pack them tightly – roll them loosely.  If you want the sausage balls consistent in size, use a melon ball scoop.  Place on an ungreased cooked sheet about 1 inch apart.  Bake at 375 – depending on the size 10 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.  These freeze well too.
