Bacon might get all the love, but this year, we’re expanding our recipe horizons and looking to another breakfast meat to dress up our appetizers: sausage! We already know where we want to start: with this recipe from Food Wishes for Sausage Cheese Balls. It’s not only easy-to-make, but also super frugal and totally delicious, stretching a small amount of meat and cheese into a snack or appetizer fit for a crowd. Watch how they’re made and give them a try.

You’ll Need

– 1 1/4 pounds raw hot Italian pork sausage meat (just remove the casing from uncooked, link-style sausages)
– Pinch of nutmeg
– 1/2 cup finely sliced green onions
– 1/2 pound (about 3 cups) shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
– 2 cups biscuit mix, or self-rising flour
