Sausage Balls

I'm always looking for easy appetizer recipes because I love to entertain. This one is super simple, and only requires a few ingredients and 10 minutes of hands-on time. It's a definite crowd-pleasure, and will not last long! Also a great app for football parties and tailgates.
{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cooking Time: 15 mins / Yields: 5 dozen 1" balls }

Ingredients:
16 oz (1 roll) Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
10 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups Bisquick
Butter flavored non-stick cooking spray

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Line a 9x13" baking sheet with aluminum foil, then spray with cooking spray and set aside. 
2. Mix the sausage and cheese together using your hands, or a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on low speed, until combined. Add the Bisquick mix, 1 cup at a time, until all ingredients have been incorporated.
3. Using a 1" cookie dough scoop, place 1" balls onto greased cooking sheet, about 1" apart. Bake for 15 mins, or until lightly browned.
4. Remove from oven and place on a paper towel to drain excess grease.
5. Serve warm, or at room temperature, with honey mustard dipping sauce.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
3 Tbsp honey

In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients until well combined. Serve at room temperature with sausage balls. The sauce can be covered in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.

Notes: 
  • This recipe freezes quite well. Once ingredients have been combined, scoop balls onto a baking sheet (just make sure it will fit into your freezer!) and freeze for 30 minutes. No need to cover. Toss frozen sausage balls into a freezer Ziplock bag. Pull out & bake when ready. You may need to add a few more minutes to the cooking time.
  • I'd highly recommend grating your own cheese. Prepackaged cheese contains cellulose to prevent caking and it can prevent sausage balls from sticking together.
