Shred your own cheese. Packaged pre-shredded cheese is coated with cellulose so it won't clump together. Well, that also means your sausage balls won't stick together when formed also. Use parchment to line the pans so they don't stick.

Love the idea of using the mixer and scoop; however, the recipe I use and everyone asks for is: 2 lbs. sausage (use good quality), 2 cups Bisquick, 2 cups grated sharp cheddar. This ratio makes a great sausage ball.

As is, finger food! Perfect for parties.
