I lost my MIL's recipe and decided to try this one. I was shocked at how dry the mixture was when I started. I ended up not using half of the baking mix called for because the mixture was so dry. Even then, it was hard to shape balls that would hold together. I also needed to bake them longer. I used Bob Evans, my preferred sausage, and have had great results in the past. I think I will try another recipe in the future as I cannot think of how to improve the measurements and ingredients. In the end, there was no sausage or cheese flavor, just baking mix
As others have said, the baking mix needs to be cut to prevent the sausage balls from being too dry. I used a cup and a half of Bisquick-- I bought one of their smallest packages and just used the whole thing. I also used one pound of Jimmy Dean Sage sausage, two cups of mixed cheddar and monterey jack cheese, and I decided to add a half cup of milk to ease the mixing process and just a little worcestershire sauce for flavor. I browned the sausage in a skillet first, then mixed it with everything else in a bowl. I then formed it into balls and baked on a foil-lined, greased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 14 minutes. They turned out wonderfully. I brought them to a party and not one was left; everyone complimented me for them. They make great appetizers! I am a beginner at cooking, but they weren't difficult at all. *****EDITING TO ADD***** I know some people have said to not cook the sausage first, but I still do it that way and still can't take them anywhere without being asked for the recipe.
