  • 3 cups Bisquick or other baking mix
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound ground pork breakfast sausage turkey would also work
  • 1/4 cup milk or a few tablespoons more as needed to bring the mix together see instructions


  • Preheat the oven to 350 and generously spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix and cheese and toss to coat.
  • Add the sausage and mix to combine.
  • Add 1/4 cup milk to help mix in any dry baking mix. If you still have some in the bottom, go ahead and add 1 tablespoon more at a time until it blends well and no baking mix is left in the bottom.
  • Form balls of the mix a little smaller than a golf ball.
  • Place on your baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes until they are evenly golden and sizzling. Makes about 3 dozen.
