it’s all about the snackage. I especially like this recipe because it captures the flavor of sausage balls, but it’s less work to whip up a batch. Pull out those mini-muffin pans and get your bake on!
Sausage Muffin Bites
1/2 pound sausage (we like hot or half hot/half mild – you choose)
1 1/2 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cup shredded cheese (sharp cheddar or pepper jack work great)
1/2 cup Velveeta, coarsely chopped or use shredded
1/2 cup milk
1 scallion, diced fine (optional, but I like them for flavor and a bit of color)
Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease muffin pans. In a large skillet, crumble and brown sausage; drain and cool. In large bowl, combine Velveeta and milk and heat in microwave until softened. Stir to blend, then add sausage, biscuit mix and shredded cheese and scallions. (If you used mild sausage and want to add some zest, add a dash of hot sauce to taste.) Mix well but don’t over-mix. Spoon into mini muffin pans and bake for 15 minutes or until tops are lightly browned – don’t overbake. Makes 24 bite-size muffins. Best served warm.
So who are you rooting for on Sunday? Do you have a favorite team, or are you like me, and tuning in mainly for the commercials?
