Party Panache, Pimiento Cheese & Sausage Puffs

This is a twist on an old Southern party favorite,

Bisquick Sausage Balls

Thank you Ricki for telling me about this version!

This combination is great for Christmas

because the red pimientos and green onion pieces

make them look party festive!

You can use prepared pimiento cheese, or make your own here

Because of the Christmas time crunch,

I used Palmetto brand Pimiento Cheese spread

You don’t have to cook the sausage first,

just mix the raw sausage with

Bisquick, pimiento cheese and green onions

If you want to make them spicier,

add jalapenos or use a pimiento cheese spread with jalapeno

You can also use hot sausage to amp up the heat if desired

I don’t recommend using a food processor for this dough

because it doesn’t cook up as light and fluffy…

it’s really best to just roll up your sleeves and mix with your hands

Use a cookie scoop or spoon or just your hands

to form dough into 1 inch balls

You can keep the balls in the refrigerator for up to 3 days,

or you can freeze them for future baking

    Jenna, I love the idea of adding pimento cheese to this familiar recipe. Pimento cheese is one of my favorites. I think I could eat a pimento cheese sandwich everyday for lunch. Thanks for the recipe! Merry Christmas!
