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.
Made as described, then needed something for office gathering which was a "healthier" version. Replaced Bisquick with their HeartSmart Bisquick; sausage was replaced with turkey sausage (added a dash of sage, ground black pepper, and pinch of salt while browning the sausage); and, cheese was replaced with a low-fat version. Next time, will not use low-fat cheese; took too much fat away and they were a tad dry. This is a great recipe - and perfect for young cooks (so long as supervised)! They have fun putting together and baking - more fun eating!!
These little bites were simple and delicious. Rather than spend the time rolling the balls, I spooned the dough into mini-muffin pans, which worked out perfectly. I used Jimmy Dean Maple Sausage in mine, which gave them a little different, but nice flavor. And they were good the next morning for breakfast with a quick warm-up in the microwave.
A household favorite!
These were simple to make and freeze well. I didn't have cheddar cheese, used hot pepper cheese instead. The first batch disappeared quickly! Thanks for the recipe.
I made these for my DH to munch on during the Thanksgiving football games. He loved 'em! I used the turkey sausage and light shredded cheese for the healthier version. Thanks for sharing!
Gosh, I've been seeing these at parties since the 70's, and never made - or ate - them myself. If I'd only known how easy and tasty they were! I added in some chopped fresh chives, but followed the recipe as written otherwise. I tossed a few dozen into the freezer, they make a nice emergency app. Thanks, KaDo!
