I really like the sausage cheese balls my Pop makes for our New Year's celebration. But sometimes, sausage gives me heartburn and well, cheddar is pretty common. I wanted to try something different. So, I decided to omit the meat (making our vegan friends happy) and change the cheese (making me happy). I cut and pasted a few recipes together, tried some different amounts of ingredients, and well, VIOLA! They're pretty good and I wouldn't hesitate to fill a basket of these and plop 'em on my appy table.
- 3⁄4 cup melted margarine
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups shredded monterey jack pepper cheese
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash Tabasco sauce
- Combine the melted margarine, cheese, flour, salt, and Tabasco, working it until a dough forms.
- Form the mixture into small balls about the size of a marble.
- Bake at 350 degrees on a sprayed cookie sheet for 20 minutes or browned.
Made these tonight to go with "Sneak in the Veggies Cheddar Cheese Soup". These are very good and will make a great finger food for our next get together. Toni in Colorado
