Sausage Fa-La-La Balls | My Kitchen! My Rules!

November 12, 2020

Welcome to the Holiday Edition of My Kitchen! My Rules!

'Tis the season for sausage balls. Sure, they’re perfectly at home on the table for Easter, the Fourth of July, and any Sunday supper, but a holiday buffet isn’t complete without a paper-towel-lined serving bowl brimming with sausage fa-la-la balls! Experiencing a Christmas without sausage balls is like waking up to no presents under the tree.

Throughout December, sausage balls show up on just about every coastal Carolina party table. Hundreds of them stacked on a regal silver tray or packed tightly in plastic containers send the message: “Eat your fill.”  Most people do.

The beauty of sausage balls is their simplicity. The recipe calls for three easy-to-find ingredients, in amounts best described as “enough.” Enough sausage so you don’t end up with meat-flavored biscuits. Enough Bisquick so you don’t end up with glorified meatballs. And enough Cheddar cheese to make them divine. Any Southern girl knows the secret recipe – 3, 2, 1. That stands for 3 cups of Bisquick, 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and 1 pound of sausage. Also, one mason jar of sweet tea [leaded or not] to drink while you assemble your ingredients. Because if you’re not drinking sweet tea when you’re throwing together a recipe that involves copious amounts of sausage and cheese, you’re just doing it wrong.

Why Bisquick? Sometime after Minnesota-based General Mills introduced the baking mix in 1931, the company created a sausage balls recipe as one of many ways to use the convenience product. Sausage balls went on to become one of the most requested recipes, General Mills reported at its Betty Crocker website.

Just remember, when trying out a new recipe, especially a Southern one, sometimes you just have to trust that it will turn out - that years of tradition have to count for something!
