As others have said, the baking mix needs to be cut to prevent the sausage balls from being too dry. I used a cup and a half of Bisquick-- I bought one of their smallest packages and just used the whole thing. I also used one pound of Jimmy Dean Sage sausage, two cups of mixed cheddar and monterey jack cheese, and I decided to add a half cup of milk to ease the mixing process and just a little worcestershire sauce for flavor. I browned the sausage in a skillet first, then mixed it with everything else in a bowl. I then formed it into balls and baked on a foil-lined, greased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 14 minutes. They turned out wonderfully. I brought them to a party and not one was left; everyone complimented me for them. They make great appetizers! I am a beginner at cooking, but they weren't difficult at all. *****EDITING TO ADD***** I know some people have said to not cook the sausage first, but I still do it that way and still can't take them anywhere without being asked for the recipe. This is my go-to appetizer when asked to bring something to a gathering. Instead of fully draining the grease, I add a little into the mixture with a little milk as stated before, and that prevents them from being dry. I use Jimmy Dean hot sausage now instead of sage; it gives it better flavor.
