Uptown Sausage Balls

You will find other recipes on this site and in many cookbooks for sausage balls  but these are really unique and delicious.  We were visiting New Bern, North Carolina with Jim and Jane in the fall and came upon this recipe that comes originally from a parishioner of that city’s grand eighteenth century Christ Church.

  • 1 pound of lean bulk sausage
  • 3 cups of baking mix
  • 10 ounces of sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup of Walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1 cup of dates, chopped (I use scissors dipped in hot water)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine ingredients and roll into marble-size balls.  Bake on a cookie sheet for 14 minutes and cool.  These may be frozen and reheated in a 300 degree oven for about 15 or 20 minutes.  This should make about seven dozen.
