Today I tried out a sausage substitute and adapted an old sausage ball recipe I used to use and it worked out PERFECTLY! Trust me, you’ll never know the meat sausage is not there!
What You’ll Need:
1 – 8 ounce bar of cheddar or Colby cheese, shredded
2 cups of baking mix (I used Bob’s Red Mill Buttermilk Biscuit Mix)
1 package of Gimme Lean Sausage Style
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In the bowl of your mixer dump all the ingredients and mix until crumbly. It looks crumbly, but it will readily stick together when mashed. Form into small balls using roughly 1 tablespoon of crumbles and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Makes about 3 dozen.
Note: The vegetarian sausage does have the fat content that meat sausage does so you have to add a little fat into them to get them to bind together.
