1 lb sausage, mild
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 (8 oz block) sharp cheddar cheese, I shredded it thickly
1 cup Bisquick
Use a large mixing bowl. If you are using the cayenne, mix the cayenne with the sausage first and then proceed. Really squish it in there to spread it out.
Mix sausage with cheese. You'll have to get your hands in there and really squish and squish becuase it's difficult mixing (unless maybe you do it in a food processor, which I don't have). Your hands will get really cold with this mixture, so I usually have to run them under warm water a time or two. Then add bisquick and mix it in well with your hands.
Divide into approx 1 inch balls and place on COLD, sprayed cookie sheet in 6 rows of 5 sausage balls each for a total of 30 balls. Don’t use good cookie sheets for this or else line them with foil beforehand. Bake at 350 for about 20 to 25 min or until nice and browned. Store other half of mixture in fridge until ready to bake second batch. Cook on another COLD sheet, to keep them from spreading.

Yummy! These are delicious and they disappear quick! Very easy to make! I got the recipe from Star, a friend of mine who added a little kick to the recipe with some cayenne! The key to this recipe is shredding your own cheese on the thicker side!
