Zesty Sausage Cheese Balls
1 package Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Hot Roll Sausage
3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup seeded, finely chopped fresh jalapeno peppers
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix all ingredients in large bowl just until blended. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls.
Place in 2 lightly greased baking pans.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until done (160°F).
Serve with toothpicks, if desired. Yield: 18 servings (2 balls each).
Cook’s Tip: Stove-top variation: Do not preheat oven. Mix ingredients and shape into balls as directed. Cook half the sausage balls in large skillet over medium heat 15-17 minutes or until done (160°F), turning frequently. Remove from skillet; place in single layer in shallow pan to keep warm. Repeat with remaining sausage balls.
