Well, it’s Christmas season again, and nothing says Christmas food like sausage balls. So I’ve come up with a real doozie. Just because you are living a healthy low carb life doesn’t mean you have to forego all of the wonderful comfort foods that you associate with this time of year. In fact, I made these for an ugly Christmas sweater party and the comment that I received was these are WAY better than what my mom used to make. Now when a Texas guy says something is better than what his mamma made that is saying a lot.
2 cups grated Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp White Cheddar Cheese
1 lb breakfast sausage (the kind that comes in the tube)
2 large eggs
2 tblsp coconut flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 pinches salt
Preheat oven to 425. While the oven is heating, mix all of the above goodness up. Form the mixture in to small balls (about an inch in diameter) and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. This goes a whole lot easier if you wet your hands first. The mixture will tend to stick to your hands otherwise. Once you’ve filled your sheet with balls (*snicker* sorry, but sometimes I have the mind of a 12 year old boy) and the oven is up to temperature, slide those puppies in for 20-25 minutes. Watch them closely starting at 15 minutes to make sure you don’t burn them. This will have to go in batches. My experience was that one batch couldn’t even last until the next batch came out the oven. People just devoured them.
