Sausage Cheese Balls

These seem to be ubiquitous during the holidays. Many people in my family just adore them, so I always make a double batch. If I double this recipe, I get about 12 dozen sausage balls. Sausage Cheese Balls only have three ingredients, so that puts them on the list of easy things to make.

As I was awake early this morning, I went ahead and made this year's quota. With these and the TV Tidbits done, I'm going to change to a sweet for the next holiday treat. Maybe my great-grandmother's pralines.

This year I decided to use the 6 qt Kitchenaid to mix the ingredients. It worked, but next time I will use the dough hook, rather than the paddle attachment.

Becky, these are good -- I've made them but not for a long time -- perhaps they should be resurrected!

I suspect Mike will grab a few of these for his breakfast this morning. They are easy and well-loved here by him, my Mom and Abbey. I am trying to get a few things made before my Mom comes today. Her health is not really allowing her to make anything this year, so I'm trying to choose relatively easy things I know she will like.

Give them a whirl again. I ran across a cookie recipe last night that I haven't done in years and I'm thinking of making again.

Will have to make these for the hubby to try. They look delicious,
and he loves anything with cheese!

Maryann, give them a try. I bet Sid will like them!
