Basil Tomato Mozzarella skewers

 

Basil, Tomato & Mozzarella Skewers

  • Mozzarella balls
  • Cherry or Grape tomatoes
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper

VERY simple appetizer!  Cut your mozzarella balls in half, cut your tomatoes in half, slice your basil into about 1/2-1 inch squares.  Slide basil, tomato and mozzarella onto skewers (alternating) then drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste 🙂 Very yum, very fresh and lite!

Healthier Seasoned Sausage Balls

  Seasoned Sausage Balls (HGN Style)

  • 5 cups of my Quick Mix Baking Mix
  • 2 1/2 lbs sausage (you can use beef, pork, turkey or chicken; I used all natural pork here)
  • 3 cups shredded raw cheddar cheese
  • 1 t minced onion
  • 2 t Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/4 t turmeric

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated entirely and it is all sticking together…. yes, this will require your hands so remove your jewelry and scrub up ;).  Pinch off enough to roll into 1-1 1/2 inch balls and place on cookie sheet.  Bake in 350º oven for 20 minutes or until cooked thoroughly and a nice browning has taken place.  Yields approximately 85-90 sausage balls, so adjust recipe to the size you need or freeze the extra for quick breakfasts or snacks. My kids like them with ranch dressing, my bbq (you can buy that here) or maple syrup, I like them plain. ENJOY!
