Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

Tempt my Tummy TuesdayWelcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. I am so glad you are joining us today.  I co-host TMTT with my twin, Lana.  This blog carnival is all about sharing recipes, cooking tips, and wonderful   kitchen and cooking finds.   This is a very talented community of cooks.  I know you will find something to tempt you.

This Thursday is my last summer meeting for our Ladies Book Club at church. (I LOVE these ladies!)  During the school year this group is a bible study.  This summer we did something different.  We have been reading Beth Moore’s book So Long Insecurity: You’ve Been a Bad Friend to Us.  I highly recommend this book!  Anyway, since Thursday is our last meeting, we are having a little something extra – lots of tempting breakfast treats.   I have already shared my favorite breakfast casserole with the ladies, so I thought I would bring something different.   I am going to make Sausage Balls and Lemon Poppy Seed  muffins. 

I know I have shared the sausage ball recipe before.  But I thought I would share it again.  This recipe is easy and the pre-cooked balls will freeze well -making them a great idea for quick cooking when getting those kiddos off to school, this fall. The muffins will freeze well, also.  I am looking forward to what the other ladies will bring, as well.

Sausage Balls

1 lb hot sausage
1 lb mild sausage
12 oz Sharp Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
12 oz Mild Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
4 cup Bisquick

Mix all ingredients together. (You have to use your hands and just get messy with it!) Roll in small balls. Place on cookie sheets. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Best served warm.

This Lemon Poppy Seed recipe is great, as well.
