Sausage Cheese Balls

My husband and I have weird conversations to say the least.  Well one day I was telling him about these sausage ball thingys (yes real techinical, that's how I roll) that my grandma used to make.  Well I searched high and low for her recipe and like always came up short.  Finally though, I came up with A recipe.  We tried them.  They were ok but a little dry.  Then I came across this recipe on the Betty Crocker website.  Bingo, here's the recipe :)

  1. I make something very similar every year around Christmas...I'm not sure how they became a Christmas thing, but that's when my mom would make them! Ours are much plainer...just sausage, Bisquick and cheese, but everyone in my family loves them.
