Sausage Bites (gluten, egg, nut, soy, corn FREE. Dairy free optional)

sausage bites   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.

Sausage Bites

  • 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!
