Hello there! Vlogmas Day 11 here. I’m sharing my very simple recipe for the popular sausage balls I fix every year for Christmas. I usually make 2 batches so there’s enough to have leftovers. We sneak a few on Christmas Eve, and we love to have these on Christmas morning with our coffee, while we open stockings and wait for everyone else to get to our house.
I cannot take credit for the recipe. It comes in one of the first cookbooks I ever received, Cooking Adventures cookbook, by CA (Columbia Academy) – the first one that came out. This recipe was shared by Cheri Eaton and Marie Judd.
2 cups Bisquick
1 lb hot sausage (you can use mild if you like)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Mix together well. Roll into small balls. Place on greased baking sheet (make sure it has sides to it though so any grease that comes out won’t drip in your oven). Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Ovens have changed some since this recipe and differ – so keep an eye on them just in case. They will need to be browned and will be done inside – you can’t have raw sausage! You can tear one open and see! That is my method.
We love these at Christmastime. I’m not sure why I don’t make them more often than just Christmas. They would actually be great to make, freeze, and take a few here and there to work for breakfast.
So we went to George’s company party last night. The dinner was catered by Two Fat Men Catering and was Devine. Each employee got two drinks each. So we used our tickets up.
I’ve not heard if my company is having a party or not. Nothing has been mentioned. We used to get a catered meal. Usually we get a $25 Walmart card for Thanksgiving, but we didn’t get that this year either. I guess we’ve all been bad employees, lol.
Anyway, George’s party was nice and we were home by 8:30 or so. We did not stay for any dancing, lol. But that meal was awesome. They had some Mississippi Mud desserts too that were out of this world. I’m going to have to make some.
While we were there, we got a text from our daughter, Katy that Little Roo had seen Santa. At least he wasn’t crying like he was with the Easter Bunny. Isn’t he getting to be a big boy? Santa looks like he is enjoying himself. I get to see my grandson again in about two weeks.
This morning Mom didn’t go to church because she was waiting for Aunt Martha and Uncle Ken to arrive. But they didn’t come yet. She said she was ready to get out of the house. I guess so. We last took her out on Sunday for a big meal out to a nice restaurant and then a big grocery shopping. And of course we worked all week and have been getting over all our little illnesses of gout, vertigo, ear infections/sore throats, etc. But I was off Friday to get a handle on Christmas.
George and I are doing good I think. We worked on stocking stuffers today after church, after a quick Subway stop. And have been wrapping some this afternoon.
At Pop Shelf the Christmas items were 50% off through today. I should have bought some but our tree is full. lol
So I need to discuss the list of thing with George and see what he thinks. I may still need to get a few things for some people. I also need to wrap George’s gifts this week and also make sure his stocking is good. I cannot do his stuff with him around so I may have to wait til Friday or close myself off in the office.
We will now be moving into the planning stages of dinner on Christmas Eve and then Christmas Day lunch spread at our house where everyone arrives and opens gifts and eats after. I’m thinking of making a quiche to go along with the sausage balls Christmas Day. Then we will have a lunch spread when Cody and Katy arrive which might be later than the rest of the crew. We will feed both.
So we’ll be focusing on that. And that is what is going on at our house.
So we are waiting to see when Aunt Martha and Uncle Ken arrive. Mom is supposed to let me know they arrive. Let’s see if she remembers. 😉
Ok off to finish wrapping. What are you guys doing this weekend?
