Sausage Cheese Balls
I do not think this is a good recipe...I have made them before and they were not this dry. I think there is too much Bisquick. My son said they were good however and he has tasted them all of the other times I have made them. I usually add chopped celery and green onions. The pork sausage nowdays is not as fatty and I think sausage cheese balls have to be somewhat greasy or they are not good. Everytime I have made them they have been eaten all up!! No matter what variations I try! I like to use a softer cheese like Colby or a mix of white and yellow cheddar cheese. I add a little baking powder sometimes. I also mix them with two BBQ forks so they are not packed down and dense. I agree the recipe by the sausage companies like Jimmy Dean or Owens are better than this recipe. Milk could only help them and I think it does as they can be dry.

Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies (White Whole Wheat Flour)
Do this!!! Soak the raisins in Amaretto, Di Saronno of course! When you add them to the dough also add the amaretto they were soaked in. Gives them the best, most wonderful taste and smell. It also makes cookies that spread out a little more. I used the recipe on the underside of the lid of Quaker oats. All oatmeal cookie recipes are basic and the same with a few variations. They make a perfect BREAKFAST cookie!

Sausage Cheese Balls
"Grease Bombs". I always get asked to bring them when I am invited to a friend's gatherings. The other things are left but not these!! I brought them to a pot luck at a new job and they disappeared right away. I live in San Antonio TX the home of Tex Mex food so grease is the thing!! I like to add chopped green onions or onions, celery and garlic salt or chopped garlic. I vary what I put into them. Any dryness can be remedied by adding more liquid or less mix. The original recipe has been jazzed up nowdays. I use a large metal bowl and mix with two meat forks to avoid compacting them.
