Sausage & Cheddar Bites


Here is an easy appetizer that appeals to finger foods & cocktail party goers. Especially appealing because it’s quick to make and people seem to love them.  Perfect as a spicy appetizer for those outdoor bbq’s coming up this summer.

Although I’m using hot breakfast sausage here, you can use any raw sausage flavor you prefer…chorizo, sage, Italian…etc.  And I have some homemade biscuit mix on hand in my refrigerator, however you can substitute Bisquick Mix if you wish.
