Scallion and Cilantro Sausage Balls

We’re back! And I think I forgot how to blog. Give me about a month to re-figure this out, cool?

I’m looking around my house as the travel destruction bomb doth hit. Laundry screams at me. Christmas loot begs to be cuddled and put away in its respective places. My husband is STILL IN BED. It’s vacation though and I’m biting my lip and practicing breathing zen exercises through this.

Sooooo, New Years Eve. Two days away. Are you going out? Staying in? Painting the town red? Picking your toenails?

Whatever happens to be floating your boat at that point in time, I thought I’d go ahead and provide you with a recipe ALONG WITH the opportunity to tap into your teenage self and make jokes for hours and days and months. I even thought about having a contest in the comment section for the best sausage ball joke, but then decided I was too classy for that sort of riff raff.

Riiiiiiight. HAVE AT IT.

Here’s my step-by-step on Tablespoon!

*what did you get from Santa?!

    I just had about 500 extremely inappropriate jokes run through my head in about 5 seconds but I will leave you with this....I'd never thought of having scallions and cilantro with my balls. But I do have to say that I'm definitely a spicy sausage ball kind of girl!

    Have fun whatever you two crazy kids end up doing for NYE! And ball jokes...on one of my dessert ball posts years ago, I actually had tons of one-liners, i.e. I had taken some out of the freezer before photographing and they were a little frozen and I called them Frosty Balls :)

    Yeah, I've tooootally been anticipating this post since you tweeted about these little balls o' goodness. They did not disappoint. ;)

    Those sound and look really good. My mouth is watering just thinking about those balls. Wow you have some beautiful balls...they're bigger than I expected. No one can resist Schweddy balls. I'll just let them make the rest of the jokes for me.

    I am the person that brings sausage balls to EVERY party. People may think it's the only thing I know how to make. Ha! I am keeping this recipe handy. And I must try the dipping sauce... thanks! xo.

    I can't wait to make these. No jokes, they really look great!

    I saw this recipe today at work, and made them when I got home. They are deLISH. Didn't have Bisquick, so I used 2c flour, 3t baking powder, 1t salt instead. Shorted the cheese and got away with it. I used 3:1 yogurt/mayo for the sauce -- came out pretty watery but that's the way healthy(ish) goes, I guess. I added cumin, garlic, and cilantro into the sauce. And I am a happy, happy girl. Thank you.

    I swear I could be a vegetarian if not for sausage.

    I made these, Bev...yumzers! I dumbed down the sauce because of my kiddos (ah, the sacrifices I make!), but still awesomeness. Mine rendered 50 balls, so apparently I made them smaller? I say bonus. Off to Tasty Kitchen for review...
