Italian-Style Sausage Balls - appetizers

Try these tasty sausage balls this holiday season.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Regular Flavor Pork Sausage Roll

3/4 cup all-purpose baking mix, such as Bisquick®

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese

1 c. packed fresh spinach leaves, finely chopped

1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 c. finely chopped red bell pepper

1 lg. clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375° F. Mix ingredients just until blended.  Shape into 40 (1-inch) balls; place in single layer in two lightly greased shallow baking pans. Bake 12-14 minutes or until done (160° F). Serve with toothpicks.

Sausage balls can be shaped ahead of time and frozen.  When ready to serve, heat oven to 375° F.  Place frozen balls on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake (160° F) for 16-18 minutes at or until done.

If using 1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Italian Flavor Pork Sausage Roll (rather than regular flavor), omit the oregano.
