Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine sausage, baking mix, Cheddar cheese, egg, and evaporated milk in the bowl of a stand mixer; mix on low speed until thoroughly combined.

  • Shape sausage mixture into 1-inch balls and arrange onto baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Bake these on a baking stone if you have one.

Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated in microwave for approximately 20 seconds.

To blend in a blender, pour soup into blender bowl no more than half full. Hold lid in place and pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

Use your favorite type of ground sausage to make different styles.
