Cooking WTF Style- Sausage Balls

 
Our oldest son LOVES when I make sausage balls, it is one of his favorites so I try to make them at least once a month.
 
I had a friend who commented one time that she only had sausage balls at Christmas not at the WTF house, we love them!
 
My recipe comes from a church cookbook.  Those cookbooks usually have lot of good tried & true recipes in them.
 
 
 
I don't know why but I could not get the photo to turn. 
 I'll post the recipe at the end of the post.


Simple ingredient list just 3 items.
Sausage
Bisquick
Shredded cheese



Just a quick note here....I use to make my own Bisquick mix but I have found that actually using Bisquick works better than the Basic Mix recipe.
 
 
Also, I prefer to buy block cheese & shred it myself.  I normally use more than 1 cup of cheese since I shred it myself & I don't use 3 cups of Bisquick.  You wouldn't expect me to follow a recipe exactly now would you?
 
 
 
After mixing the ingredients together, roll them into balls & bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.



Then forget to take a picture until they are all almost gone!
But I can assure you everyone in the family LOVED them!!
 
 
 
Sausage Balls
3 cups Bisquick
1 lb. sausage
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix ingredients together & roll into balls.  Bake for  15 minutes.

Cooking from the Farmer's Market- Eggplant

 
Eggplant is not something I cook much.  I normally cook it once a year & do my version of Eggplant Parmesan.  But I was trying to branch out a little & try something different.  I got 4 small eggplants from Correll Farms at the the Farmer's Market on Saturday & then googled eggplant recipes.  I came across a recipe called Eggplant Caviar that sounded good & I went from there.
 


This picture is actually from the website not my picture.  While my Eggplant Caviar tasted good it was not as pleasing to look at as this picture.
 
 
I would definitely make this recipe again but I added maybe a little too much garlic so I would not add as much garlic the next time.  But on another note there were no vampires at our house all week-end!

Cooking WTF Style- Meatballs

 
I have been trying to venture out some & cook a few "new" recipes instead of our tried & true recipes.
 
Ground beef is something I hardly EVER cook.  While a lot of people use it for tacos I use WTF chorizo or some people use it in spaghetti/lasagna I use WTF Hot Italian or Zesty Italian sausage.
 
I do use it for meatloaf but the kids claim they don't like meatloaf so I decided to modify the meatloaf recipe into meatballs....tricky of me!!
 
So the WTF version of BBQ Meatballs starts with a package of WTF ground beef.



We also need cracker crumbs, milk, eggs & salt.
 
 
If you want you can make your own BBQ be my guest.  I happened to have some Sweet Baby Rays in the pantry so I cheated this time & used that instead.
 
Here is the final product.  It's hard to take a good picture of meatballs so this is an oven shot!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
BBQ Meatballs
 
1-lb. ground beef
1 cup cracker crumbs
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
 
*BBQ Sauce*
 
1-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
 
2-Mix ground beef, cracker crumbs, milk, eggs & salt in a large bowl.  Roll out meatballs & place on baking sheet with a rim.  Pour BBQ sauce over meatballs.
 
3- Bake for 45-minutes or until meatballs are no longer pink in the center.
