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!

Quick Mix Baking Mix

I have used Laura from Heavenly Homemaker’s idea for mixing up a “Quick Mix” for use in different things while baking.  This has saved me a lot of time.

     Quick Mix Baking Mix

  • 10 c whole wheat flour (I milled a mix of hard red, hard white and soft white)
  • 1/2  c baking powder
  • 1/4 c sucanat (whole cane sugar)
  • 2 t sea salt
  • 2 c butter (I use real, organic, butter from grass-fed beef)

In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sucanat and salt. Cut in butter until the mix looks like fine crumbs.  Store in air tight container in freezer.

Some uses for the Quick Mix Baking Mix:

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Whole Wheat Biscuits

Sausage & Egg Puff
