Sausage Balls

If you need a quick appetizer or even a new lunchbox item, try these sausage balls. You can alter the flavor by trying the different types of sausage (maple, spicy, etc.).  These are very moist, but be careful not to over bake them as I once did because then you will either have a happy dog (should you have one) or a full trash can.☺


1 (16 ounce) package pork sausage (the kind in a plastic cylinder)
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese*
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery


Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Form into 1" balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet; bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with cocktail forks or toothpicks.

*If you use pre-shredded cheese in a bag reduce baking mix by 1/4 cup due to the anti-caking agents in pre-shredded cheese.
