I love sausage balls. They're really popular in the South, more so in Alabama than in my area of Florida. Every family tweaks this recipe a little bit (I added some Old Bay) so feel free to experiment. I have a friend that uses venison sausage instead of the pork.
(Old Southern Recipe, but checked measurements from Paula Deen)
1 (1-pound) package ground sausage
3 cups baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
4 cups grated sharp Cheddar
1/8 tablespoon pepper
1 tablespoon Old Bay
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. Mix well with your fingers. The mixture will be very crumbly.
Form into 1 inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together, then rolling it between the palms of your hands to form balls.
Place the balls on the baking sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
