Sausage Cheddar Balls

Sausage Cheddar Balls

 

These savory Sausage Cheddar Balls only use three ingredients and they are ridiculously easy to make!  I made them for a potluck at work today and they were a hit.  I especially love this recipe because you can make them the day before, as they reheat really well in the microwave.

I saw this recipe on Trisha Yearwood’s Southern Kitchen show on the Food Network a few weeks ago and knew I had to make them for my next potluck!

Ingredients:

1 lb. ground sausage (regular or spicy)

1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese

3 cups Bisquick

Pinch of salt

Sprinkle of black pepper

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.   Shape the mix into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 375 degrees for 16 to 20 minutes.  Don’t overbake them as they can get a little dried out.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

If you’re making the day before, let the balls cool completely.  Store in a ziploc bag in the refrigerator.  Reheat in the microwave for approximately 3 to 4 minutes.  When reheating, keep the balls in the slightly opened ziploc bag.  The steam from the bag will make them extra moist and yummy.

Crockpot Sausage and Pasta Sauce

This is an easy, hearty, and delicious main dish, shared by Jamie G!  You can’t go wrong with this at your next potluck.

Using sausage links in this recipe also makes great Italian sausage sandwiches.  The leftovers can be frozen, although I doubt you’ll have any!

Ingredients:

2 pounds mild or spicy Italian sausage (ground or links)

1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce

2 – 14.5 oz Hunts stewed tomatoes

1 sliced onion

1 sliced bell pepper

1/4 cup red or white wine (optional)

1 tsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. dried basil

1 tsp. garlic salt

Pepper

Spray crockpot with PAM and put in sausage (if you use ground sausage, Jamie recommends putting pinches of the sausage into the bottom of the crockpot), onion, and bell pepper.  Pour in the pasta sauce, stewed tomatoes, wine, oregano, basil, garlic salt, and pepper.  Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours (or on high for 3 hours) or until sausage is cooked.  Serve over any type of pasta noodle.
