We are a football house!  We love to have game day parties and entertain during football season, especially when we get into the fun of the playoffs.  I recently stopped by our local Dollar General to pick up some game day party supplies.

They have everything you need for the perfect game day party, including snacks, drinks, and tableware.  I picked up some Coca-Cola, Coke Zero, snacks, and the ingredients to make my Cheesy Sausage Balls.

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking tray with foil.  Spray with a non-stick spray.

Step 2:  Combine the sausage, baking mix, cheese, and garlic powder in a bowl.  Mix it well.  It’s totally messy but it’s easiest to do this with your fingers.

Hello--recipe looks great but what is baking mix?? Thank you!

Thank you! Baking mix is a general mix that can be used to make biscuits, pancakes, etc. You can find it in the baking aisle. Bisquick is the most common brand that comes to mind.
