Asteroids

"Another recipe possibility from All Purpose Baking Mix ... Actually, this recipe is not mine. A very long time ago I copied it from somewhere -- and I've been using it ever since -- but I can't for the life of me remember where I got it from! Anyway, enjoy!" ... EC


Asteroids


Ingredients
-- 1 pound of your favorite, seasoned, ground sausage or ground meat - crumbled, browned, drained slightly & cooled (you can add a bit of chopped onion during the browning process if you like - I usually do!)
-- 1 pound of grated cheddar cheese (either mild or sharp, to your preference. I've even spiced it up a bit by using Pepper Jack cheese instead, or adding some grated or finely chopped jalapeno!)
-- 1 cup of All Purpose Baking Mix
-- 1/4 cup milk (more if too dry, but add sparingly and start with 1/4 cup first)
-- 1 egg. This is optional, for those who prefer to work with some sort of binder.

Process

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix everything together very well. Then roll dough with your hands into 1 inch sized balls. Rolling these as loosely as possible helps to keep them moister. Place them in lightly greased mini-muffin tins, or simply place on baking sheet with room between each.

Bake for 25 minutes, or until nicely golden brown. Best served warm, and can be served with a dipping sauce such as bar-b-que sauce or ketchup, etc.

But these can also be eaten later as a snack (if they last that long!) like this: crumble desired number of Asteroids into a glass or bowl, add milk to cover (milk can be warm or cold), enjoy with a spoon or fork! As a youngster (many moons ago!) I used to do this with cornbread all the time - wow, what a treat! It's a favorite Southern States (USA) thing to do!
