In this, the first edition of CBHarper Family Kitchen, we present a beloved favorite during holiday events and road trips alike – Kim Dooley’s Spicy Sausage Balls.
First you will need the following ingredients:
1 Pound of Jimmy Dean’s Hot Sausage
1 1/2 Cups of Bisquick
2 Cups of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup of Shredded Jalapeño Jack Cheese.
The chef recommends HEB bags of pre-shredded cheese but your preference can be substituted.
1-2 Seeded & Diced Jalapeños
Preheat your oven to 350º.
Line a cookie sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper or non-stick aluminum foil.
Then, in a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together until it is well-blended. Form the mixture into balls about the size of ping-pong balls, or golf balls – depending on the size of your appetite. Line up the morsels on the parchment or foil lined pan.
The sausage balls will cook for a total of about 30 minutes (this time frame will depend on how your oven cooks). You will need to pull them out of the oven after about 15 minutes and flip them so they will be evenly browned. If you notice that they seem to be browning a little too quickly, then lower the temperature to about 325º.
If you can allow these to cool before enjoying it will avoid a slight singe to your tastebuds. They are so tasty you might want to start on the second batch while you enjoy the first. Don’t forget to share with friends and family! A special thank you Kim Dooley for sharing this delicious recipe!
