Vegan Sausage Balls

Let me start by saying that these are so very addictive.  You truly will not be able to eat just one.  I made these little devils for my Christmas Eve party and they were a huge hit with all of the omnivores in attendance.  I was a little skeptical about how they would go over but they all loved them.  I like to show a vegan alternative for foods especially when I'm feeding meat eaters.  It makes me extra happy when they enjoy what I've made.  So, please go get the ingredients and make these.  A perfect way to end 2013.

2 cups Bisquick(yes, it's vegan...I was shocked too)
1 1/2 cup Daiya Cheddar 
1 cup Daiya Pepperjack
1 pack of Gimme Lean Sausage

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with your hands until everything is incorporated together sorta like a crumble. 

Once you've mixed everything well, form
into 1 inch balls...
Make sure that they are well formed and the ingredients stick together. This recipe should make about 50 sausage balls. 

When I first made them I baked them in the oven.  They turned out pretty dry because of the no fat or oils from the vegan sausage and cheese so the next batch I fried in coconut oil and they turned out perfect.    I fried them until they were nice and brown   Moving around in the oil so they could cook evenly. 

I made a dipping sauce for the sausage balls using maple syrup, chili paste and Franks Hot Sauce. I didn't measure for the sauce. Adjust the chili paste and Franks to your spicy liking.  

Trust me when I say that you will love the sausage balls. 

I really can't think of a better way to end 2013 than with a delicious vegan sausage ball...so go make them!

Make It With Love
Happy New Year!!!!!!!
