Sausage Cheese Balls

These remind me of a sausage breakfast biscuit. Some people like to dip them in maple syrup, others in barbecue sauce. Me, I like them plain. Great as an appetizer or a side dish for brunch.

adjusted from

1 lb. bulk pork sausage (like Jimmy Dean)
1 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
4 cups (16 oz) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1/2 tsp. dried parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (easiest if you use your hands). Roll into 1-inch balls and place on lightly greased, foil-lined jelly roll pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

If you wish to make these ahead of time, just cover the pan with plastic wrap after rolling the balls and freeze until ready to bake. Preheat oven, remove from freezer and let thaw for 10-15 minutes before baking.
