The countdown is on! 4 weeks until SEC football kicks off! It is like Christmas here in the South. I like a good college football game, as any good Southern girl does, but I love a good tailgate. I think the tailgate is (almost) as important as the game. I am always on the look out for a good recipe for our tailgate.
Every Friday from now until the end of the season I plan on sharing one of my favorite tailgate recipes. I will post some tried and true recipes and a few new recipes that I discovered in the off-season. This is a twist on sausage balls. I substituted Ro*tel for the milk in our Whiz Sausage Balls. We really liked it. It adds a little kick without being too spicy, so everyone should be able to enjoy them.
RO*TEL Sausage Balls
1 lb sausage
3 cups Bisquick
8 oz Cheese Whiz
1 can RO*TEL diced tomatoes with green chilies
Pulse RO*TEL in food processor until the tomatoes are broken up into smaller chunks; 10-15 pules.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine sausage, Bisquick, Cheese Whiz and RO*TEL. Mix until thoroughly combined. Shape into 1-inch balls. (May be frozen at this point).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
