    Thierry Schwartz's Note:

    If you've been in the SCA or around any of the fighters, you'll know what I'm talking about. Fighter Biscuits are not only popular with my family, they are served as mundane cocktail party appetizers. I think that is where the recipe originally came from. Their main drawback is the fact that due to the sausage in the mix, they should be kept cold. I think that 25 fighters used 75 biscuits per day of battle.

    1. 1
      Combine the ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.

      Use your hands--it’s messy, but efficient.

      Be sure you add enough water to make your dough almost too sticky to handle.
    4. 4
      Your fighter biscuits will be moist and tasty, and will not dry out in the oven.
    5. 5
      Roll the dough into 1-1/4 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
    6. 6

      Hi, I have made these for over 30 years for holidays but they were on the J.Dean sausage package as Sausage Balls.It's nice to know where the recipe came from. Thanks for posting.

      I've been looking for this recipe for a while. My friends would tell me verbally, but I never had a chance to write it down. Thanks for posting it!

      I just made these with a copycat Bisquick recipe--no problem and less expensive than buying the real thing. Because of where I live, I also had to mix my own sausage, and I used Italian sausage spices. I got 30 good -sized balls. You wouldn't want more than one or two per person as part of an appetizer table. They cooked in 30 minutes on parchement paper, which really helped with cleanup. I also had to to use Swiss as there is no Cheddar here, but I don't think that made any difference. Really fast and easy, especially if you do it all with your hands. They didn't spread much while cooking, stayed blob-like, so I would put more on a tray next time to make it even faster. I know this will be a cheap, fast and tasty cocktail party recipe, which is exactly what I was testing it for. This batch will go towards breakfasts, snacks and instead of sandwiches for lunch. A good find here that I got completely at random.
