Cooking WTF Style-Ham Steak

 
To say that the summer flew by is an understatement.  The start of school means a lot of different things to people for us it means Lee gets a lot more done at the farm because his "farm help" isn't there & for me it means I get back into the cooking groove.
 
During the summer I do a lot of week-end cooking & we do a lot of eating of leftovers thru the week.  Or we eat A LOT of vegetables & other goodies we have gotten from the Farmer's Market.
 
I'm also busy canning & freezing so we have plenty to eat during the fall & winter so I don't feel like cooking!
 
Our menu for the first week of school has been:
 
Monday
 Lamb Burger Sliders (WTF Lamb)
Steamed Broccoli (WTF Garden/Frozen)
Apples (Davidson Farmer's Mkt./Canned)
 
Tuesday
Ham Steak (WTF Pork)
Crowder Peas (WTF Garden/Canned)
Bread (Grocery Store)
served with Butter (Davidson Farmer's Mkt.) & Peach Jam (Peaches & Cream peaches canned by me)
Pickles (Correll Farms cucumbers canned by me)
 
Wednesday
Tacos/Burritos (WTF Chorizo)
served with Funky Pepper Salsa (Salisbury Farmer's Market)
 
 
So we are off to a good start for the school year.
*****
 
 
Now, for one of my easy, easy meals.....Ham Steak.
 
Thaw it, season it & toss it on the George Foreman Grill.  How much simpler can we get?

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.
