This recipe is good if you use 1lb. of Jimmy Dean sausage, 2 cups of Bisquick, and 2 cups of sharp cheddar. We have been making these for years and they are so good. We always have water on hand and add a little at a time just to make it easier to mix. Makes all the difference in the world.



You should absolutely pre-cook the sausage. That way, you can drain the sausage and get rid of a lot of the grease. The mix it in with the cheese and Bisquick, and bake until golden brown. This is an easy, tasty appetizer that freezes well, so all you have to do is thaw them and pop them in the oven (or microwave, but oven is better) to warm them up. I do suggest using hot sausage, or a mixture of hot and sweet, because mild sausage makes them a little bland.



There is way too much baking mix in this recipe. After I used it my mom told me she only uses 3/4 cup per pound of sausage for hers. I couldn't even get most of mine to absorb.
