Makes

1 dozen

These bite-sized meatballs are a favorite of mine. Feel free to swap in different cheese for the cheddar or to serve the balls with Dijon mustard instead of the barbecue and sweet-and-sour sauces.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped celery
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • Optional: Sweet-and-sour and barbecue sauces

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. Crumble sausage over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls.
  2. Place in a shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauces if desired.
