    These are tasty and so easy to make. I mix up a batch and freeze the shaped balls, just pop in the oven when I need a fast bring something food.

    2 cups Bisquick
    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
    1lb sausage

    I use Jimmy Dean Hot sausage, it's not greasy and the sausage flavor comes through. I was surprised the hot flavor was not strong at all.
    Mix the ingredients together.

    (I use my mixer with the curly hooks. I don't like putting my hands in food)

    Roll into balls about 1 1/2" round, they will rise and bake bigger then the size you roll. Place on cooking sheet.

    (I line the sheet with parchment paper so I don't have to wash the pan)

    (I found it's a lot less messier to use disposable gloves to form the balls as the mix does not stick to the gloves.)

    Bake in 350 for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

    This looks delish. I have just started tyring to adapt the regular Bisquick recipes to the gluten free Bisquick. This morning we had pancakes made from left over mashed potatoes.

    I love left over mashed potatoes. I add onion, cheese, egg, and Bisquick or self rising flour, drop big spoonfuls into a frying pan and fry until crispy brown. It's one of my family's favorite foods.

    We rarely have leftover mashed potatoes, so that was a real treat.

    I think about this every holiday season and then forget about them. I think they are a MUST for this year....and they freeze well from what I hear..

    I have not ever made them yet but I think after cooking them I would put them in a mini- crockpot on the appetizer buffet table...(with toothpicks or mini forks close by...)

    Used to make these for Christmas buffets every year. My girls loved to help make them and eat them. Haven't had any for several years, but my youngest did make a request not long ago. Think I will do some for Christmas Eve. Thanks for reminding me.:)

    I have been suing that same recipe for sausage balls for 30 plus years and it is still one of my favorites. I prefer Jimmy Dean hot sausage also. They freeze well and can be popped in the microwave for a minute. One of my DS's fav.

    Do you cook the sausage before mixing with the bisquick or
    just use it raw?
    Sounds like something my family would love..
    Thanks for the info.

    They sure sound yummy. Do you serve them with a dipping sauce, or plain?

    Bisquick is a pre-mixed baking product sold by General Mills under their Betty Crocker brand, consisting of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder. It is very similar to Jiffy Mix.

    This has been a family favorite for several years. The only difference is I use 2# of sausage. They are really great!

    Sorry I haven't heard of Jiffy Mix either here in Australia. I suppos a basic pastry recipe would be a substitute. What do you think?

    Probably would be similar, I haven't tried this copycat recipe but it would give you a better idea.

    Thanks for the link but it seems to be a recipe that is very high on fat which I need to avoid as much as possible. Thanks again. I am sure they are tasty.

    lauriejo,
    Didn't know Bisquick had a gluten-free mix. How are the recipes?

    lauriejo,

    The recipes on the box are very similar to what I remember. It doesn't quite work cup for cup with regular recipes, it seems to thicken more and need a little more liquid. They do have some more recipes on the website, but not all of the ones in my cookbooks. I used it with the leftover mashed potatoes after Thanksgiving and it was delish!
