When you are making these, you might want to make a double batch or maybe even a triple batch. These are great to make, roll and then freeze. Then you can pop them out of the freezer and into the oven when guests show up unexpectedly.

Make it a great day, you deserve it!

Lip Smacking Good Sausage Balls

2 1/2 cups baking mix

2 1/2 cups sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese

1 lb hot sausage (we use Jimmy Dean)

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 or 3 green onions finely chopped (green tops only)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Break apart sausage into a mixing bowl

Add remainder of ingredients

Using your fingers, mix this all together. It is gonna take a bit of work but don’t worry, it really does all mix together to form a dough.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet

Bake for 20 – 24 minutes

Remove from baking sheet right away

Now…..ENJOY!!!

Makes approximately 5 dozen

If you would like to freeze these, put them on a baking sheet and instead of baking, pop them into the freezer until firm. You can then plop them all into a Ziploc and freeze until you are ready to use. You will need to extend the baking a few minutes when baking from a frozen state.
