Kicked Up Creole Sausage Balls
dry biscuit mix [i.e. Bisquick]
chopped chives or 2 green onions
hot or mild ground pork breakfast sausage [i.e. Jimmy Dean]
milk or buttermilk
plus additional for serving
shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Creole or honey mustard for serving
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the biscuit mix, creole seasoning and chopped chives or onion.
Add the sausage, 1/2 cup of milk or buttermilk and creole mustard.
Using your hands, mix until thoroughly combined. (If this is your first time making sausage balls, it takes a few minutes to fully incorporate all of the ingredients.)
After the sausage and biscuit mix is combined, add in the shredded cheddar cheese. Mix until evenly distributed.
Divide the mixture using a Tbsp or small cookie scoop. Roll the mixture into bite size balls and place onto the cookie sheet 1-inch apart.
Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden.
Serve warm with sweet-hot mustard, Creole or honey mustard for serving.
If you can't find creole mustard, a deli style whole grain or Dijon mustard can be used instead.
