Sausage cheese balls

Three cheers for sausage cheese balls&ndasha southern staple with four ingredients, we make these for breakfast, baby showers, busy weekday breakfasts, you name it. 15 minutes and they&rsquore perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Right now I&rsquom wondering if you are scratching your head&ndashwondering what sausage cheese balls are. Are you? I hope not. Because if you are, that means you&rsquove never had one.

All of my growing up life, sausage cheese balls were reserved for Christmas parties and weddings. And if you got one you were lucky because they always got eaten up before you could stuff any more in a napkin, or your mouth. Or your pockets.

Worse things have happened.

My mom used to sneak six slices of pizza out of the Mr. Gatti&rsquos buffet line in her purse when I was a kid. A snack for my brother (who had already had 15 slices in the restaurant) for the ride home. This is not a lie.

Today my family eats sausage cheese balls as a breakfast staple. I don&rsquot know why you wouldn&rsquot. And of course because they are so basic, you could add some jalapeno&rsquos if you wanted some heat, pepper jack cheese (or another of your favorites), some sauteed onions and peppers&hellipwhatever floats your boat.

Or you could eat them like God intended. Straight up. You won&rsquot be sorry either way. I make a big batch and stick them in the fridge for the week. A few seconds in the microwave and you&rsquore good to go.
