There's something about sausage balls and winter that go together. Maybe it's the spiciness of the sausage along with a hot food that warms the body. Whatever it is, sausage balls sure are good on a cold day.
The recipe for sausage balls is, as it is said, a "no brainer." You only need three ingredients: sausage, cheese and a baking mix such as Bisquick. I use regular sausage, sharp Cheddar cheese and Heart Smart Bisquick. You could use hot or sage sausage, mild Cheddar cheese and regular Bisquick. To make a sausage ball that's out of the ordinary, use ground Italian sausage and Mozzarella cheese.
Although sausage balls aren't difficult to make, it does take time to mix all the ingredients together. Don't even try to mix everything with a spoon or mixer. The only way to mix the ingredients is with your hands. It requires some effort, but there are a couple of ways to make the job easier.
