Sausage and Cheese Finger Food

This is a recipe for a sausage and cheese finger food, submitted by ATC's founder, Pete Pathfinder Davis, who resides at the mother church HQ in Index, Washington. I have been known to make a meal of these treats when I'm too tired (or lazy) to cook myself dinner!

This recipe is so simple it can easily be committed to memory.

I prefer sharp cheddar and mild sausage, since the spicier sausage blends can overpower the cheddar flavor. The onions are optional, but worth the trouble for the extra flavor.

1 pound of grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 pound of mild sausage meat (fresh ground is best)
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped

Add the Bisquick and the chopped onion to a bowl (or industrial strength mixer, like a Kitchen Aid) and mix together, slowly adding first the shredded cheese, and then the ground sausage meat, in small clumps, slowly enough to allow the sausage to be broken up and mixed into the rest. Best not to mix it too much or else it becomes too uniform and somewhat dry and pasty. A mottled appearance is mixed well enough. Once this is mixed fairly uniformly, roll into small (3/4" diameter) balls in your hands and place on a baking sheet. (If you use parchment paper to line the cookie sheet, the sausage balls will slide right off when cooked.)

Bake them at 325 F in a preheated oven for 17 to 20 minutes. When using parchment paper liners, 17 minutes is usually always enough.

Take from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before attempting to take from the sheet. Without paper, they will stick.

If you don't have an industrial strength mixer, the whole bunch of ingredients may be squeezed by hand to mix before forming the balls.

Once they have cooled enough to handle, eat!
