"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Barnes Kids


2 lb. hot sausage
1 1/2 c. sharp shredded cheddar cheese
5 c. Bisquick mix

If you want add Hungarian Paprika to mix for color and additional zip

Cook sausage and let it set at room temperature along with shredded cheese.
Mix everything up in a big bowl.
This is an easy appetizer for little kids to help make.
If you are not a little kid, drink a beer and watch TV while you
Roll into sausage/cheese/Bisquick into little balls (about a hearty teaspoon worth) and store in the freezer in plastic bags.

For a last minute going to a party (or giving a party - Friday night friends coming over) take out as many as you think people will eat (like 4 or 5 per person).

Using a floured fork lightly press the ball down, or use your thumb for a thumb print.

Bake at 350 for about 20 mins. Don't overcook -- just want a nice brown color.

If you have a thumb print you can put a smidgen of apricot jelly or barbecue sauce in the center of some of the appetizers.
