New Years Eve!

Every year, a tradition started with my mom, we have snacks for dinner and through out the night.  We have things like shrimp cocktail, loaded potato skins, sausage cheese balls, carrots and ranch dip, lil' smokies, deviled eggs. Sometimes hubby and I have a pina colada or a brandy slush.  This year we are having a brandy slushies since the blender kicked the bucket!

Getting ready for New Years Eve!
 The food is all set and ready to go!

 Now lets get to some recipes!!

2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake mix
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 packages sausage (I used Jimmie Dean regular sausage)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together either by hand  or with a mixer.  I line a baking pan with parchment paper and was able to put all 37 sausage balls on the pan.  Bake at 400F for about 25 minutes until golden and cooked through.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year!
