Sausage Cheese Puffs Recipe

People are always surprised when I tell them there are only four ingredients in these tasty bite-size puffs. Cheesy and spicy, the golden morsels are a fun novelty at a breakfast or brunch...and they also make yummy party appetizers. —Della Moore Troy, New York

"When cooking the sausage, I put in onion, garlic, red and green peppers...they were a hit and a request to make more! Thanks for sharing!"

"This is the same recipe that I use with a couple of differences. I add about 1/4 or 1/3 cup of hot sauce to the drained sausage and grated sharp cheddar cheese before I add the baking mix. I bake mine at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. They are my oldest son's favorite."
