Servings: 48 bites
Prep Time: 20 min
Cook Time: 22 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 pound bulk sausage (hot, sweet, or breakfast sausage), crumbled
3 cups baking mix (recommended: Bisquick)
2 cups (1/2 pound) grated Cheddar
24 grape tomatoes, halved





Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the sausage, baking mix, and cheese. Mix very well with your hands, or in a food processor, until the meat and cheese are evenly distributed (the mixture will seem dry). Roll and press the mixture into 1-inch balls.

Transfer the sausage balls to a baking sheet and flatten each one with the palm of your hand. Make a small indentation in each patty with your thumb and nestle a tomato half, cut side up, in the indentation.

Bake until the meat is cooked through, 15 to 25 minutes. Broil for 3 minutes. Serve hot or warm.

What is sprinkled on top of tomato? It looks like some sort of white cheese, but I only see cheddar in the recipe.
