Until a few years ago, I stayed away from all things that had sausage in it. I didn't eat sausage links or patties at breakfast, I didn't eat any kind of pizza that included sausage as a topping, and I certainly didn't eat things like Sausage Dip or Sausage Balls. Nope.

I have no idea how the flip got switched, but now, I'm likely to choose sausage over bacon for breakfast and at a party, go ahead and try to pull me away from the Sausage Dip. Ain't gonna happen. When our friends Chris and Sarah showed up to a tailgate with sausage balls a couple of seasons ago, I'm pretty sure that I devoured at least half of them, if not more. Ever since then, I've been on a mission to perfect the Sausage Ball recipe.

... except, there's no need to perfect it. Any basic recipe for sausage balls is pretty fantastic! Here's the one that we like to use in our house.

Sausage Balls

1 lb Jimmy Dean sausage
3 cups Original Bisquick mix
4 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix together sausage, Bisquick, and cheese.
3. Roll mixture together in your hands to form 1" balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
4. Cook in the oven 20 - 25 minutes, or until brown.
5. Enjoy!

Things I will never admit: how many of these bad boys I ate by myself. I'm not great at sharing when it comes to these, and I've got a husband who respects the "don't you dare touch that piece of food" look that his pregnant wife occasionally has in her eye.

These are exceptional ideal for morning tailgates. Can you tell that I've got Clemson football games and tailgates on my mind this week? Since Clemson's first game of the season is at noon and will have a morning tailgate, you can bet that these will be making an appearance at the season opener.
