  • Servings 102

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Bisquick™ Original Pancake & Baking Mix
  • 1 lb uncooked bulk pork sausage
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese (16 oz)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley or 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • Barbecue sauce or chili sauce, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease bottom and sides of 2 rimmed 15x10x1-inch baking pans.
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir together all ingredients except barbecue sauce, using hands or spoon. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place 1/2 inch apart on pans.
  • 3
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pans halfway through bake time, until brown. Immediately remove from pan; transfer to serving platter. Serve warm with sauce for dipping.

  • What is sausage? Nothing more than finely chopped and well-seasoned meat; sausage choices are nearly unlimited—from pork to chicken and turkey. But all sausages depend on some degree of fat in the mixture, which gives it its succulence and delicious flavor.
  • Lightly wet your hands to roll the balls to prevent sticking.
  • Using a small (1 tablespoon) cookie scoop makes forming the Sausage-Cheese Balls a quick and easy task.
  • Offer a variety of dips when serving these up to guests. Try barbecue sauce, chili sauce, a mayo/yogurt dressing mixed up with a good sprinkle of garlic salt, lots of chopped fresh herbs and more Parmesan cheese, or a blend of Ranch dressing with a spoonful of basil pesto.
