I made these for my husband's office for breakfast. Very simple ingredients - just make sure it is well incorporated before rolling into balls. It will look very dry and crumbly, but, keep working with it and it will come together into a smooth ball. Make sure you don't see any of the dry Bisquick. I only used about 1-1/2 lbs of sausage and about 1-1/2 cups of Bisquick. My oven cooks hot - so, I also baked at 350 for 20 minutes instead of 400 and they were perfect. I also baked them on a parchment covered baking sheet and they came right off the paper. Thanks, Mitchell!

I have found that if I microwave the sausage for a bit, it is easier to mix with the other ingredients. After cooling, I freeze these in a ziplock bag and microwave as many as needed for breakfast.
