Things I Love Thursday

This week for TILT I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes that I happen to be making today.

Sausage Balls


1lb of Jimmy Dean's Mild Sausage

2 1/2 cups of Pioneer Baking Mix

1/2-1cup of fancy shredded cheese depending on your tastes

I always make a double batch or they won't last long. :)

Combine ingredients in a large bowl & mix thoroughly with your hands. Don't forget to take off all jewelry and if you have any cuts, or just don't want to touch raw meat, then use gloves. I use a closed fist and punching motion then fold it over & start again to mix all the flour in. It should look like this.

After the ingredients are mixed preheat your oven to 375 F .
On a cookie sheet roll the dough in to 1-1.5" balls and spread evenly not touching.
Alyssa helped me roll them in to balls so this would be a great part to get your kids involved in.
(This is all the counter space I have to work on. A whole 12" unless I use the table.)
Cook for 18-20 minutes.
To test if they are done, poke them with a toothpick. If it comes out clean then they are done.

They are more like a thick meaty bread by the time you eat them and are very delicious.

I haven't tried it yet (we always eat them all) but I believe this would be great to freeze and cook for a no prep breakfast or at least an addition to one!

How funny! I made biscuits with sausage and gravy this evening! :)

I definitely plan on trying this!! I'm all about recipes with only 3 ingredients! Thanks for sharing!

Those look great I havn't made them for a long time. They make great party snacks also. I have them made up & freeze...just pop a tray in the oven as needed..but your right, they never last long before they are eaten right up!

I made these for a MOPS brunch last year and they were AMAZING!! I could not stop eating them though and feared I would polish off the whole plate :)
