Tis the time of year for endless entertaining and parties. I get tired of being the one that takes the veggie tray with hummus because I want to make sure there is something there I can eat. I found this recipe on one of my friends Facebook page but it used a flour based product and no seasoning. Not sure where it originated but thought it might be a good one to convert into a gluten free/egg free /dairy-optional version.
- 1 lb. sausage meat or ground pork (uncooked)
- 8 oz. cream cheese
- 1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- ( 12 oz Daiya dairy free cheese can be used to replace the cream cheese and cheddar cheese)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 onion finely minced
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 c. AS Pancake/Waffle mix (you will have a 1/2 pkg. left over)
Place everything in bowl and mix well (I used my stand mixer with the dough hook)
Form into 1 inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake 400F for 20 to 25 min
I have to say they were so yummy. My kids ate them with BBQ sauce and ketchup, I liked them on their own.
Happy Holiday Entertaining!
