Sausage Puffs - CRAZY good!!! SO simple to make and they taste amazing!!! Only 5 ingredients - butter, cheddar cheese, sausage, worcestershire and flour. These things fly off the plate at parties. You will want to double the recipe! A great alternative to our usual sausage balls. SO GOOD!!! #sausage #tailgating #appetizer #partyfood #quickappetizer
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a skillet, cook sausage until crumbled and no longer pink. Drain fat.
In a bowl, combine butter, cheese, cooked sausage and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Blend in flour.
Form dough into 1/2-inch balls. Place on baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
I like to make small half-inch balls. They are the perfect bite-size, in my opinion. If you want bigger puffs, make them bigger. It is up to you! Just check the cooking time. Bigger puffs might take a minute or two longer to bake.
You can substitute turkey sausage in this recipe.
I use King Arthur All-Purpose Flour.
One cup of flour weighs 4.25-ounces. To properly measure flour, give the flour a stir to loosen it up in the container. Use a spoon and lightly spoon the flour into your measuring cup. Use a flat straight edge (like the straight back of a knife) to level off the top of the flour in the measuring cup. Do NOT compact the flour in the measuring cup.
Make sure to mix the dough well to get all of the flour incorporated.
You can freeze the baked puffs for a quick snack later.
