Directions:
Heat oven to 325 degrees. With hands, combine sausage and cheese together in a bowl. Add Bixmix and blend in thoroughly. Roll into little marble sized balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold. Makes about 60 balls.

Personal Notes:
The recipe has changed a little over the last 50 years. I have never baked them in marble sized balls. Ours are at least an inch in diameter. The time we bake them has remained about the same. I cannot imagine how hard those marble sized balls would have been and no way could we get 60 balls out of this recipe now.

They are good kept warm in a crock pot and I always used mild sausage since Jim does not like his food too hot or spicy.

I have learned to use parchment paper or the silicone baking sheets to keep the balls from sticking to the pan. We used to have them firmly stuck and lost a lot of the good crust on the bottom.
