  • 1   pound 
    Paula Deen Breakfast Sausage
  • 3   cups 
    Bisquick baking mix
  • 4   cups 
    grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
    pepper (or more if desired)
Sweet and Spicy Ketchup Dipping Sauce:
  • 1   cup 
  • 2   
    cloves garlic, minced
  • 2   tablespoons 
    dark brown sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    ground chipotle pepper
    Pinch of cayenne pepper
    Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray.
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with your fingers. The mixture will be very crumbly.
Form into 1-inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together, then rolling it between the palms of your hands to form balls. Place balls on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. To prevent sticking, move the sausage balls with a spatula halfway through cooking. When cool, remove them from the cookie sheet.
To make dipping sauce, combine all dipping sauce ingredients into a small saucepan. Stir over low heat for 3-4 minutes until sugar dissolves. Serve warm or at room temperature. You can also make this ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator until you're ready for it.
