I've been looking at this recipe for quite some time. I was very tempted after someone else had made some sausage balls that looked devine. So taking the part of this recipe being faceless, I wanted to make them. I followed to a T. And instantly knew...to much baking mix. Not enough sausage and wow...loads of cheese(this after being in my mixing bowl and trying to mix all the ingredients). Still trying to make my way through the recipe, very thick to mix by hand(so others need to know, electric mixer with a dough blade)....it is very simple & easy recipe. The end result is where I had the most problems. At 25 minutes they looked done on top(used a broiler pan) so I pulled off and they were doughy and wet still on the bottom. Transfered & inverted the balls to a baking sheet and 10 minutes later...still looking undone. I broke one open and it appeared done, but was still dense, moist and doughy. With the hint of sausage flavor under the big biscuit flavor that was way more pronounced. This recipe needs to be modified big time. While my kids thought the "dumplings" as they called them were okay and filling, it didn't hit the mark over all with me and I was disappointed. There is obviously too much baking mix, not enough sausage & parsley. Not sure if there is too much cheese as well. Because the whole recipe was too dense. Sorry for a poor review, but it's my honest opinion. Won't be making the recipe as is...will play around with it until I get it how I feel it should be.
