Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls

2 lbs. Sage Sausage (Jimmy Dean's my favorite)
4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c. minced onion
1/2 c. celery, chopped fine
1 1/2 c. biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or minced garlic

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix everything together thoroughly.
Shape into into 1" balls. (If you're making for later, freeze at this step. Thaw when ready to use and cook normally.)
Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15 min or until golden brown.
Makes about 6 dozen.

For something different, try some ingredient replacements.
1) replace celery with cooked chopped broccoli.
2) fine chopped jalapeno peppers and add 1/2 tsp chili powder.
3) Replace one of the pounds of sausage with Italian sausage, add 1/2 tsp of Italian seasoning, and add some Parmesan cheese.
