Sausage Balls


Sausage Balls are a family favorite breakfast during the colder months. They are easy to make and taste wonderful when served with honey, maple syrup, or mustard.

Sausage Ball Traditions
When I was a girl, it was a family tradition to eat Sausage Balls on Christmas morning. I’ve continued this tradition with my own family and it’s one that we really love and look forward to every year.

This Sausage Balls recipe is perfect for Christmas morning because you can make the sausage balls in advance and freeze them until it’s time to bake. This means less work for you on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.

You don’t have to wait until Christmas to enjoy these sausage balls though. I keep some frozen Sausage Balls in my freezer during the winter months and just pop a few into the oven whenever we need a quick breakfast.

A Food Processor Makes It Easy
When I make up a batch of Sausage Balls, I like to save time by using my food processor. I have a Ninja food processor that is no longer available for purchase, but this one is similar.

In my Ninja food processor, it’s much easier to blend up half the ingredients at one time. I put in 1/2 pound of sausage and 1/2 pound of Velveeta then blend until just barely combined. Then I add in 3/4 cup of Bisquick and pulse it a few times to mix it in.

Careful – Don’t Over-mix the Dough
Make sure you don’t over-mix the dough. You don’t want the dough to be completely smooth and uniform. You want it all just barely combined. It’s perfect if you can still see patches of cheese and sausage.ee

If you mix the dough too much, the sausage balls tend to be tough and a bit rubbery in texture.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can combine the sausage, Velveeta, and Bisquick by hand in a large bowl. I’d suggest combining the sausage with the cheese then adding the Bisquick last.

Now We’re Rocking and Rolling
Once the dough has been combined, start rolling them into walnut-sized balls. Again, the Sausage Balls don’t have to be completely smooth and uniform. I like to make the sausage balls walnut-sized so that you can get 2 or maybe 3 bites out of each Sausage Ball.

You can make the Sausage Balls smaller if you’d prefer. Just reduce the cooking time by a few minutes so that they don’t get overdone and dried out.

How to Freeze Sausage Balls
To freeze Sausage Balls, just place the uncooked Sausage Balls onto a freezer-safe tray that has been covered with wax paper then place it in the freezer for 1-2 hours until firm.

My sheet pans do not fit into my freezer so I have to get creative and come up with another plan. Sometimes I use a freezer-safe 13X9 inch pan. I’ve also used a cutting board. Really, anything you have that is flat and will fit in your freezer is perfect.

Once the Sausage Balls are firm, you can transfer them to a zip-top storage bag for longer-term freezer storage. Since they were firmed up on a tray before being put into the bag, they will not stick together.

You do not have to thaw the frozen Sausage Balls before baking. Just take out as many Sausage Balls as you need and bake according to recipe directions. You might need to add an extra 2-3 minutes to the bake time.

What To Dip ‘Em In
When I was growing up, we always dipped our Sausage Balls in honey. My sister-in-law always dipped hers in mustard. Maple syrup is another great dip possibility. And what about grape jelly? That sounds really delicious.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
