Sausage Balls (Makes 2 1/2 dozen)
1/2 lb. fresh pork sausage (I use Jimmy Dean's Original) (not pre-sliced)
5 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 - 2 T. water
1 c. almond flour/meal (Bob's Red Mill is available at my drugstore)
1/4 tsp. baking powder
dash of red pepper
Mix sausage, cheese, and water thoroughly. Using clean hands is best. Sprinkle the almond flour/meal, baking powder, and dash of red pepper over the mixture. Mix again thoroughly. Shape into 1" balls and placed on foil-lined cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick. Bake at 350 degrees approximately 20 - 25 minutes til they just begin to brown a little. Serve warm, refrigerate or freeze. You can pop them in the microwave for a delicious treat.
