While gearing up for the big Super Bowl game, I reached out to my Grandma for the sausage balls recipe that we enjoyed devoured on Christmas Eve.  The guys barely got to eat any after they came back from golf – we almost polished them all off.  These are great to make ahead of time and just pop in the oven when you’re ready, or bake them the day before and just warm up before the game!

Sausage Balls

  • 1 C baked sweet potato, mashed
  • 1 lb sausage, uncooked
  • 12 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • ~2 C Bisquick

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Combine sweet potato, cheese and sausage.  Add ~2 cups of Bisquick, slowly working it in by the half cup until the mixture adheres together well.

Shape into 1 inch balls, place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. 14.5 minutes was the right time for my oven.

They even freeze well – baked, or unbaked.  Wrap them in foil, place in a baggie and use when ready!sausage-balls

Edits : Rollene doesn’t use the whole 2 cups of Bisquick, so really add that part slowly while mixing the sausage mixture well.  Also she uses a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet!

Results : These were just as good as I remembered and we finished them just as quickly as in Georgia.  Since the Falcons won the NFC championship when we ate them in Charleston, looks like I’ll be making another batch for Super Bowl Sunday!  Oh, and did I mention the sweet potato makes you feel healthier?  Perfect for no guilt football snacking 🙂
