Something Yummy - Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls
adapted from Cowtails and Haybales
Sausage balls are little round, bundles of goodness.  At the end of October, I'm heading to a scrapbooking retreat and was trying to decide what meal to sign up for that was easy.  That lead to breakfast and taking a coffee cake but I felt like I needed something with some protein in it too which led me to the idea of Sausage Balls.  I can make them in advance, freeze them, and then people can just heat up the (thawed) goodness in the microwave.  Super easy.  My sister-in-law has made these for years, or a version of them, so I knew they were good.  This recipe is exceptional - it is flavorful and not dry!  The cream cheese is the game changer for sure! 

1 lb  sausage  (if you like hot sausage, you can use that - I used just regular Bob Evans ground sausage)
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
1 & 1/4 Cup Bisquick
4 oz sharp shredded cheddar cheese

Combine all of the ingredients.  The original recipe said to use your hands but I just ended up with a huge mess so I dumped it all in my mixer bowl and used my mixer instead!!  Roll them into 1 inch balls and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 20 minutes at 375* until browned.
