Cheesy Sausage Tidbits

Sausage. Cheese. Biscuit. This sounds more like a breakfast food than an appetizer...and I suppose it could go both ways, but a note of warning to those of you planning on turning this appetizer into breakfast...this is in no way healthy! I found this recipe over at Allrecipes and figured that no football loving man would turn away sausage wrapped in biscuit and cheese, so it made the final cut into my Super Bowl spread.

The dough portion of this recipe, as written, is pretty dry. I discovered that there was no way it was going to stick around the sausage being so dry, so I added about a 1/4 cup of water to the dough mixture. I'm letting you know this because the amount of water you want to add is completely up to you. I just added until the dough felt to be a good consistency to form around the sausage. So you'll have to play with it a little bit.

Otherwise, this recipe was great! These little sausage tidbits were quite tasty, and we enjoyed them dipped in some ketchup. I think they'd be mighty divine dipped in some syrup as well! But I'm not so sure how sticky syrup sitting on an appetizer plate in your living room on your couch would go over...


...1 pkg. sausage links
...1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
...1/2 c. butter
...1 tsp. garlic salt
...1 1/4 c. flour


Cook sausages according to package directions. When cool, cut each link into thirds. In a large bowl, combine the cheese, butter, garlic salt and flour until a dough forms. Add water until the dough has reached a consistency appropriate for wrapping around the sausage bits. Roll each sausage piece into a small chunk of dough, forming a ball. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
