Sausage Balls

Yesterdays talk of poker made me hungry for Sausage Balls. They were a staple whenever our weekly poker game was held at my apartment. All those years ago. The Sausage Balls could easily have been the number one reason why the weekly poker game was held at my apartment.

Well, that, and the excellent ventilation that my open windows offered. For the inevitable cigar smoking that accompanies a game of poker.

Not that I smoked cigars. Oh no. Not with my delicate sensibilities. But, the Sausage Balls gave me no gastronomical trouble. Way back then. I’m not certain that would hold true today.

To say these were popular with my starving actor poker playing friends would be a gross understatement. They rarely made it off the cookie sheet and onto the serving platter.

The serving platter was the lid of a cardboard box, covered in aluminum foil.

Martha Stewart would have wept.

I’m totally guessing on the measurements, because I had no known official recipe. But, this is really hard to screw up. In fact, if I should have a section in my cookbook called, “Hard To Screw Up.” Sausage Balls would be the first page.

Sausage Balls

Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage Roll (Mild)
1 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup of Bisquick

Smoosh all together in a bowl. (Today, in my sanitary mommy mode, I would utilize disposable gloves.) Roll into small balls and place on a cookie sheet. No need to grease the sheet. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 25 minutes. (This is where my memory is fuzzy. Just watch them for smoke.)

Serve in an aluminum foil lined cardboard box lid.

Or a platter.

Whatever.

You may have guessed that this recipe is not a part of my usual healthy fare. But every once in a while, I need to shake things up a bit.

Throw caution, and my potentially clogged arteries to the wind. Just for grins. Those celery sticks in my refrigerator aren’t going bad anytime soon.
