The freakin weekend

Finally, it's the weekend! This week has gone by slow for some reason. I guess because I've been so busy at work. Well, no more after 5!

When Jim gets off work we are heading to his hometown for that golf tournament I mentioned earlier this week. Tonight we will be going straight to our friends house for a low country boil. I think I am going to take sausage balls for a little appetizer and I will probably double the recipe so the boys can have a snack while playing golf tomorrow. I might take some to the pool for us girls too :)

Here's the recipe I'll be using.

Bisquick Sausage Balls

2 cups Bisquick
1 pound sausage
10 oz. pack of shredded cheese (or just shred your own from a block of cheddar)

Put everything in the bowl and mix.
Roll the mixture into balls, a little smaller than golf balls.
Place the sausage balls on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degress for about 20 minutes. The Bisquick balls should be lightly browned wtih the meat cooked through.

Cook sausage halfway and pour off grease.
If doubling recipe use 1 package of hot sausage and 1 package of mild. Gives it a little zip!
Use medium cheddar cheese. I love sharp cheddar, but it can make it too dry.

I'll let everyone know if they turn out good!

Have a great weekend!

  5. My mom used to make those sausage balls and I had forgotten all about them!

    What is a Low Country Boil? We only have Crawfish and Shrimp Boils here in Texas.

  6. WHAT?!?! Pour off the grease?? That's the best part! Haha! Just kidding...kinda... I could eat my weight in sausage balls! I'm pretty sure I have actually. I go through phases where I make a mess of sausage balls once a week for months. So so so so good.
