Hi everyone! As we continue with our January series on Celebrity Home Chef’s I am happy to present you with the worldly Sarah Damaskos, originally from Sylvania, Ohio a suburb of Toledo. She is the proud mother of two and Sr Marketing Specialist at Emilcott — Environmental, Health and Safety consulting company in Chatham,NJ.
She tells us that this classic Redbook-type recipe will add some bolstering to the Russo flan recipe? Sometimes they are just fun while being delicious! Or maybe you serve it with a side of sauteed chard? You’ve got it — balance in all things.
Easy recipe, great for busy day make ahead and always a party favorite — football games, girls night, holiday party, whatever. (P.S. In the attached photo…the cat is a painting on the wall of the house!)
Enjoy her recipe and keep sending in your recipes-there are only 2 weeks left in January to be a Celebrity Home Chef on Take Back the Kitchen!!!
Marcia’s Sausage Balls (aka “Ohio Potstickers”)
1 lb spicy italian sausage (bulk or out of casings; you can use 50/50 sweet sausage to reduce the heat)
1/2 c parmesan cheese
1 small jar cheez whiz
3 c bisquick
1/4 c milk
3 Tbsp oregano
2 tsp minced onion
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Roll into 1″ balls (oil hands first to reduce mess).
Place on ungreased, rimmed cookie sheet 1″ apart*.
Bake in preheated oven @ 400 deg F for 20 min.
Add a fancy toothpick, and, voila! a 1970’s party treat that flies off the platter!
*To make ahead, freeze balls on a cookie sheet. Wait 12 hours then pop into a ziplock bag. Defrost out of bag on a cookie sheet so they don’t stick together. Bake as noted above.
