Can substitute turkey sausage or reduced fat cheese for a healthier version. Couldn't be easier!
- Brown sausage in a frying pan, crumbling it as it cooks. Set aside to cool.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine Bisquick, water, and cheese. Stir, then mix in cooled sausage.
- Wet your hands (so the meat won't stick) and roll into small balls. Bake on cookie sheets at 325 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
If you grew up in the south and are used to dense Bisquick sausages balls - this is NOT the right recipe. These are biscuits with some sausage and cheese tossed in.
These were awesome! I sauteed mushrooms and added those to the dough as well. I also used 2 kinds of cheese -- cheddar and spicy pepper jack -- but I used less than 1 pound. I mixed my Bisquick with milk instead of water. And I made bigger balls -- more like biscuit sized. They were a big hit and everyone loved them. Great recipe.
I consider myself a decent cook - and these turned out terrible! I think I made them too big - but they flattened like little biscuits and didn't have a lot of flavor. I used my silver sheet pans - and they took at least twice as long to cook. I am going to try again today - and I think I will try to amp up the taste a little with less bisquick, some herbs, some heat, milk instead of water. These had too much biscuit dough for me.
