Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls
Makes approximately 2 & 1/2 dozen

1 lb country sausage
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup Bisquick
Couple dashes of hot sauce
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped (1/4 tsp if dried)
Sprinkle of hot pepper flakes, salt & pepper
Spicy brown mustard for serving

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all ingredients, except mustard, together.  I put everything in the bowl of my stand mixture and combined using the dough hook (scrapping the sides several time to make sure the bisquick was incorporated).  Roll into golf ball sized portions.  Bake for 20 - 25 on a greased cookie sheet until brown - watch closely at the 20 minute mark. Allow them to cool for about 10 minutes and serve with mustard on the side.

I had to come back and look at this again.

Oh gosh, I'd forgotten about these. I had a cousin who always made them for holiday appetizers. I always wondered how to make them. Thanks, Lara!

I have not had sausage ball in so long. I love, love, love them! You're gonna have to help me encourage Jamie to get my oven fixed so I can get back to baking. My toaster oven just does not cut it!
