Sausage Cheese Balls

If you have ever been in the south during the winter holidays, I know you have eaten these!  We always called them just "Sausage Balls"  but there is a lot of cheese in them so...Sausage Cheese Balls they are!  I can remember these from way back when.  Seems there were always on the table of snacks when there were get togethers at Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  I don't know why they were never fixed in the warmer months of the year.  Something I will have to find out!  Easy to make, Yummy to Eat!   ~smiles~

Sausage Cheese Balls
I made 49 from this recipe.  Mine aren't always the same size for some reason. 

3 cups biscuit mix
1 lb bulk sausage
1-2 lb cheddar cheese 3-4 cups shredded..I used cut up chunks I had and got 3 cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray cookie sheets (2)

Toss everything with a fork,  

Mix with hands.  

Shape into walnut size balls. Bake on greased cookie sheets (2) for 15-20 minutes @ 350 degrees.  

 Halfway through,  lift sausage balls up with spatula so they won't stick and turn pan around.  As always, My oven cooks different than yours.  Please adjust time accordingly.
  
Place a paper towels to absorb grease from the bottom.  Remove from paper towels, place on serving plate and serve with spicy or honey mustard.
