This started as the Paula Dean sausage ball recipe but I changed it too suit our family.
YUMMY Sausage Balls
1# package ground sausage (raw)
2 cups baking mix (I used Pamela's GF baking mix)
4 cups grated Raw Sharp Cheddar
1 large egg
1/8 tablespoon pepper
Dip: 1 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup ketchup
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. Mix well with your fingers. The mixture will be crumbly. Form into 1 inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together, then rolling it between the palms of your hands to form balls. Place the balls on the baking sheet.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. To prevent sticking, move the balls with a spatula halfway through cooking.
To make the dip, combine the mayonnaise and ketchup. Serve with sausage balls.
