  1. Ashleigh – you can use milk. I like to use buttermilk because I think it adds a nice flavor. You might not need as much milk as buttermilk. Add the milk slowly.

  2. Just made them and they are the best I have had, and so easy to make. They reheat easy too. So good .My family's new favorite.p

  4. RTR!!! Can't wait to try this new recipe for game days. Have you ever substituted the beef with sausage?

    1. The brand name here is crisco. It is a white solid vegetable shortening. Similar to lard

  5. For bacon bits – fry up 4 or 5 slices of bacon and chop it up.

    For the baking mix – The name brand here is Bisquick. You can make it from scratch – mix together

    2 cups flour
    ¼ cup shortening
    1 tsp salt
    2 Tbsp baking powder

  6. Hey, I just came across your AMAZING blog!
    I'm a UK resident and really want to make these.
    However, I've no idea what you mean by "bacon bits" and "biscuit/baking mix".
    Please help! 😀 xx

  7. these are great i doubled the recipe and made about 40 depending on what size balls u make them into …..yum the were delicious and my 3 yr old loved them 🙂

  8. eepy – to make buttermilk at home – 1 cup milk plus 1 Tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice.

  9. Could I use skim milk in place of buttermilk? I hate buying dairy products just to use a little bit.

  10. I think I'm going to add an onion to the ground beef when I brown it, since my whole family is addicted to onion. I'll let you know how it comes out.

  11. Just made these for tailgating at a spring college football game. I of course had to taste test one before I take them…they aren't good…..they are SUPER GOOD!!!

    I did double the batch and towards the end had to add just a little bit more buttermilk because the mixture wasn't holding together.

  12. these look so good and sound so easy to make! definitely going to try them. my hubby will love! thanks for sharing 🙂

  13. I live in Auburn and can't wait till tomorrow and A Day!! I also can't wait to try these yummy sounding and looking appetizers.
    War Eagle!
