An easy appetizer recipe that is very handy to have in the freezer during the holidays or any time of year. Very versatile, in that you can use different flavored sausages and cheese to create a unique flavor that you will enjoy.
Mix all of the above ingredients in a large bowl until very well blended. This is very stiff and takes a while to mix all together. Shape the mixture into little balls and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 20 minutes.
NOTE: There are many kinds and flavors of breakfast sausage. Just use what your preference would be and the same with the shredded cheese. It is fun to experiment with the different flavors. My original recipe calls for hot sausage and cheddar cheese.
I like to place these in Ziploc bags in the freezer and pull them out as needed during the holiday season and just reheat for a few seconds in the microwave.
My recipe made approximately 56 of the balls.
