#ohthisisgonnabegood-Sausage Balls

Along,long time ago on a Christmas morning a family member who shall remain unnamed,got a good chuckle from the fact that the only way I knew how to make biscuits was from a mix.  I thought a pretty great mix,but nobody was asking me. Any-ways. 

So since then I have learned how to make some dang fine from-scratch,flaky biscuits . I love from-scratch biscuits,good heavens a scrambled egg and a piece of cheese makes a fine breakfast sandwich that will surely get you to lunch without that mid-morning snack. Ooooh fine. I mean slather some melted butter and honey on those flaky layers and YOU. ARE. DONE. Call it quits,it's gonna take you under.
     But I digress,oh yes biscuit mix.
      Bisquick has been around forever and is a trusted name in baking mixes. In fact I used it this morning to make some waffles and loved every bite. Bisquick has a variety of uses,they even make cookbooks dedicated to it's various uses: coating on oven-fried chicken,topping for a delicious cobbler and the reason I'm typing to you today a binder in a fine sausage ball.
 South Your Mouth is a new blog I have stumbled upon recently. I think I like it and if the rest of the recipes are as good as these sausage balls...oh it will be a wonderful blog to share from!

Sausage Balls
adapted from South Your Mouth
3 cups Bisquick baking mix
2lbs breakfast sausage ( I used 1lb mid and 1lb hot.)
4 cups sharp cheddar cheese,shredded
4 green onions finely chopped
salt and pepper
1. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. You will do the best job mixing with your hands, I haven't met a spatula that could handle this mix .
2.Using a cookie scoop or two spoons,scoop out a 2 TBL size glob,roll into a ball and put on a foil-lined and greased baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. 
3.Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes,rotating baking sheet halfway during cooking.
