Sausage Balls

I dislike meatballs. I know some of you might be gasping at the thought, but it's true. The texture never is right, the taste isn't right... okay, I just don't like them.

THEN, I was introduced to these lovelies. Tried them at Holiday Hints last year and have loved them ever since. I make them as appetizers, to serve with spaghetti, eat leftovers for breakfast...
Oh, and they are wonderful. Adapted from

2 1/2 c Baking mix
1 lb Bulk pork sausage
4 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 c Parmesan cheese, grated
1/3 c Milk
1 t Dried rosemary leaves, crushed
1 1/2 tsp Fresh parsley, chopped (or 1/2 tsp parsley flakes)
Barbecue, sweet & sour, or chili sauce, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a jelly roll pan.
2. Stir together all ingredients, using hands or spoon. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on pan.
3. Bake 20-25 min or until brown. Immediately remove from pan. Serve warm with dipping sauces. Makes about 6-8 dozen balls.
