Christmas Sausage Bites
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas
You can still dine in traditional Southern style, yet stay healthy, too. These tiny Christmas Sausage Bites have that old-fashioned flavor but less fat.
Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups buttermilk biscuit mix
1 pound reduced fat country pork sausage (thawed, if frozen, crumbled)
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat Cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons low fat milk (1 percent milkfat)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray 2 baking sheets with the cooking spray.
In a large bowl, using a fork or your hands, mix the biscuit mix, sausage, and cheeses until well blended.
Add the milk and blend thoroughly, then roll the mixture into 72 balls, 1 inch in diameter.
Arrange the balls on the baking sheets and bake for 20 minutes or just until golden brown.
Serve hot with toothpicks.
