First, you need to find a big ol’ bowl, one that you’re sure is bigger than you need. You need lots of mixing room to get this mixed up right. Once you’ve located your bowl, throw in the cheese THAT YOU GRATED because we’re not using pre-grated packaged cheese. Remember?
Add cayenne pepper, if using, to baking mix. Pour on top of cheese and mix well.
Next, take you room temperature ground sausage and start mixing it in with the flour and cheese blend. Mix and mix until it all comes together in a nice big ball.
Prepare a baking sheet, or two, by covering with foil and spraying with nonstick spray.
Pinch off pieces of the mixture and roll into walnut size balls. Place one inch apart on baking sheets.
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until the balls are nicely browned being careful not to let bottoms burn.
Let sit on the baking sheet for 5 minute before removing. Serve with Honey Mustard Sage Sauce.
