Saturday Afternoon Snack Spread with Sausage Balls of Death

On Saturday a bunch of people including some out of town guests came over for snacks after a round of golf.  As the hostess with the mostess I put out a grand spread.

What's on the table you ask?  Moving clockwise: Sausage cheese balls of death with two dipping sauces (BBQ & mayo/mustard) , pretzel thins, bacon cheese dip, crackers,  4 cheeses (cheddar, jack, Colby, jalapeno), sun dried tomato pesto, marcona almonds, green olives, black olives, green lantern dressing with veggies for dipping, cornichon pickles, meat platter (turkey, Parmesan crusted salami, french ham, hard salami)

Sausage Balls of Death
1 pound bulk sausage ( i like spicy!)
3 cups of biscuit mix
3 cups of shredded cheese ( I used a Mexican blend, but cheddar would be yummy too)
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon of red chile flakes

Mix all ingredients together with your hands until well combines.  Roll into balls about the size of a golf ball and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake about 20-30 minutes at 350 until nice and brown.  Turn once 1/2 way through cooking for even browning.   I got about 23 golf ball size Sausage Balls of Death.  The boys loved them and asked for more.

  1. That was a most excellent snack spread if I may say so. Could barely keep myself away from that table even when I was full!
