Hello Julie’s Eats & Treats readers! It’s Jaren from Diary of a Recipe Collector back to share a yummy appetizer for your next party. Do you all have any big New Year’s Eve plans? New Year’s has always been one of my favorite holidays. Now I have to admit, since becoming a mother almost 9 years ago, my New Year’s Eve plans look a little different than they once did. My kiddos love to pop fireworks, but I usually spend my evening either inside with one of my little ones who is scared of all the noise or outside holding my breath hoping my curious son doesn’t burn himself. These nights are way different from when my husband and I would go out to eat a nice dinner and then head to someone’s house to ring in the New Year.
No matter what we do, however, we usually have little bites to nibble. Have you ever had a Sausage-Cheese Ball? They are a classic recipe that has been around a while. These Mexican Sausage Balls are my version of the classic. The recipe doesn’t get easier. You don’t even need to cook the breakfast sausage. You just mix it up with the baking mix and the other fixings, bake them up, and serve them warm.
Plus, you can make them ahead of time too. I actually did that for these before one of our little Christmas gatherings. It was so nice to know that after I crammed in some last minute Christmas shopping that day, all I had to do was come home and stick these in the oven. I love easy recipes like that!
Thanks for allowing me to share with you today. Hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year’s!!
