Vintage Recipe - Sausage Cheese Puffs

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

Looking at this recipe for Sausage Cheese Puffs I am almost certain it is the Bisquick Sausage Ball recipe my best friend and I would make every Christmas. It is SO GOOD! I would always use half spicy and half mild pork sausage as well as sharp cheddar cheese. The resulting sausage balls are not spicy but they have SO MUCH FLAVOR! These are always a welcome addition at a potluck or party!

Mine needed a bit longer to bake than this recipe states. My first sheet baked for 20 minutes. The second sheet for 18 minutes.

This recipe was handwritten on both sides of an index card. It was found in an old large recipe file box. The age of the recipe card is unknown.
