Phat Food Friday: Seasoned Cheezy Sausage Bites

Today I am sharing with you one of my FAVORITE recipes!
You may have tried a similar version...but THIS on has been perfected.
I first tried these treats at my mother in laws house during the holidays.
They are so good, I make them nearly every week.
Why? Because they bake quickly, are DELICIOUS and are super easy to reheat.
Read on for my tips on the BEST Seasoned Cheesy Sausage bites!
Gather your ingredients:
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 cup Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour
  • 4 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • One 16 oz. roll of Jimmy Dean Sausage, softened
  •  (You can use their hot sausage if your family likes spicy foods...
  • I use the regular sausage for the kid friendly crowd here)
  •  1 1/2 Tablespoon scoop ~optional
  • 1"x11"x17" jelly roll pan.
 Preheat your oven to 375
Measure out 2 cups of Bisquick and add to your mixing bowl.
 Measure out 1 cup of seasoned flour and add to your mixing bowl.
Add 4 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and the
16 oz. roll of Jimmy Dean Sausage, softened (I let it sit on the counter while I get everything else out...this step helps mixing everything together).
Mix all ingredients together.
You can do this step by hand if desired.
When all ingredients are combined...
Grab your handy 1 1/2 Tablespoon scoop ...
and drop even scppos of your mixture onto your 1"x11"x17" jelly roll pan.
You can spoon them out and roll by hand if you don't have the scoop is just helpful for uniform sizes: )
I like to roll them so they are nice and uniform, but this step is optional.
Slide them in the  375⁰ oven and bake 12 minutes.
Remove from pan and inhale enjoy!
These are great for a quick breakfast, or after school snack.
Plus they are great party appetizers!
Fort later: let them cool then store in an airtight Tupperware or zip lock bag in the fridge.
To reheat:
Spray plate with water.
Place Sausage Bites on plate.
Cover with a damp paper towel or they will DRY out.
Microwave for 10-12 seconds per ball (3 pieces=30 seconds)
Mmmm....have a tasty day!
