I get up really early to ride the bus to work, so in addition to packing my lunch, I also pack breakfast to take along. A few minutes in the microwave once I'm at work and I have a nice hot breakfast. Studies have proven that we function better if we provide our bodies fuel for the day. I can vouch for that! Along with my coffee, I have to have some type of protein to start my day. It helps keep my hunger under control and prevents those embarrassing tummy growls during meetings!
What I liked about this recipe is that it truly is low carb. It does not contain baking mix that many sausage ball recipes call for.
These would also be great appetizers or game day nibblers.
Cheesy Sausage BallsMakes approximately 34 balls
1 pound ground pork sausage. I prefer hot, but pick what suits your taste
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup shredded, sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Mix together using your hands, just until the ingredients are combined.
Make balls that are about an inch in diameter and place on the parchment line sheets.
I used my smallest ice cream scoop for this task.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.
Remove the balls to a tray lined with paper towels to allow them to drain the excess grease.
...and that's What's Cooking at Cathy's ~ Enjoy!
