These are kinda good. I made them using the exact recipe. I was surprised when I made them, I thought when I made 1.5" balls that they would shrink a little, but they turned out huge! I didn't add anything to spice it up since it called for hot sausage, but the ones I picked out were overpoweringly spicy. It would be better to refine this recipe using mild sausage and a measure of complimentary spices. I also used the 8 ounces of sharp cheddar as called for but it didn't come through in the finished product very well, especially against the spice and Bisquick. Both my brother and I tried these (incidentally he works at McDonalds) and even though I did not tell him there was bisquick in these he said "I handle a lot of sausage and pancakes every morning, and that's what this tastes like, but spicier." He then broke out the maple syrup and dipped them in it, and that's when it became clear: this is not a great party food or a great starter or app, but it IS decent as a breakfast item. If you want a good party version of this, I would use more cheese, a lot less bisquick, and melt some cheese over the top of the balls at the end. Also, they should be closer to 1" in diameter. If you keep them as is, they might be good as part of some kind of breakfast meatball sandwich!
