There are a few things in this world that no matter the diet nor time of day nor time of year that I simply CAN NOT resist. And here they are: pizza, rotel dip, hashbrown casserole and my all-time favorite sausage cheese balls. I rememeber being at Christmas party when I was kid and strategically placing myself next to the bowl of sausage cheese balls. Every time someone would come that way, I would nod and say “Merry Christmas” and secretly hope they weren’t going to get put any on their plate, but the minute they turned their back I would shove another one of those little balls of heaven in my mouth. And when they were all gone and the guests continued to come over and say with disappointment “aw, the sausage cheese balls are all gone”, I stood there and agreed with them in and pretended that I wasn’t the one who in fact ate the ENTIRE bowl. That may or may not have been in what my dad swears he didn’t refer to me as my “Chubbette the Cheerleader” awkward phase of my early adolescence that I think we girls can all relate to (and then again for most of us with the freshman 15) . I accept it. It was true…..I have learned a little more self control since I was that lumpy little 10-year old, but I still love those things just the same. The one thing I don’t love is making them. They are messy, messy, messy……..but not this recipe. My mother-in-law made these for us from her church cookbook and I have to say…..you still have all the flavor without the messy hands. So, put this on your menu for your Christmas party this year and be sure to double the recipe for the sneaky little Amanda Lees that just might situate themself at your food table and not leave any for the other guests.
