This version of the classic southern party snack is less greasy and feature a healthy dose of cheddar cheese and buttermilk for extra flavor.
cut into 1/2-inch pieces
cheddar cheese, very old, sharp
1 cup grated
Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a food processor, pulse together the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne until combined.
Add the butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, about ½ dozen to one dozen times. Add the sausage and cheddar cheese and pulse until combined, about ½ dozen pulses. Transfer mixture to bowl and stir in the buttermilk until combined.
Working with wet hands, roll 1 tablespoon dough at a time into 1¼-inch balls and place, evenly spaced, on the baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking. Transfer baking sheet to wire rack and let balls cool for 5 minutes.
Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauces. We like to serve these with Outback Blooming Onion Spicy Dipping Sauce
