We created the recipe in our Test Kitchen for the perfect balance of cheese and sausage. Adding fresh chives gives each bite subtle onion flavor and a touch of color. Ingredients 1 pound pork sausage 1 cup biscuit mix 2 tablespoons milk 8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the ground sausage and baking mix. Using hands, thoroughly mix until combined, adding milk 1 Tbsp. at a time as needed. Add cheeses and chives; mix well. Divide mixture into about 1 1/2 Tbsp portions and roll into 1 1/2- inch balls. Arrange on prepared pan. Bake until lightly brown, 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
