Sausage Balls

A quick grab & go breakfast or a great appetizer.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
8oz. mild cheddar cheese (crumbles or shredded)
8oz. sharp cheddar cheese (crumbles or shredded)
1 lb. pkg. ground sausage (Like Jimmy Dean- any flavor)

Combine all ingredients. Knead with your hands to incorporate everything. The mixture is very dry. It should take about 5 minutes to mix it all together.

Form into small meatballs (about 1 1/2 inches) and place 2 cookie sheets lined with foil & sprayed with cooking spray OR lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for about a minute and then set paper towels to absorb extra oil while they cool.

Makes around 48+ balls.
