The Basic Fundamentals

Score a field goal with these irresistible sausage bites made with 3 types of cheese. Homemade biscuit mix prepared with common kitchen staples including real butter stars in this updated classic tailgating favorite.

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup cold butter
2-oz cold cream cheese
2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 lb hot Italian sausage
1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded Jarlesberg cheese
1/3 cup buttermilk
Garnishes: Fresh parsley & crushed red pepper flakes

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the butter & cream cheese into the mixture using a pastry blender. Toss in the basil & garlic coating well. Add the cheese & toss to coat. Crumble the sausage over the flour mixture. Drizzle with the buttermilk & combine until well blended. Portion the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls {1-oz each} using a cookie scoop. Place on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans spacing 1/2-inch apart. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

The sausage bites can frozen & baked just before guests arrive. Portion & place on baking sheets as directed. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours. Place in zip top freezer bags. Use within 1 month.

makes 8 servings

Style Points

Heirloom silver demitasse spoons make a sweet addition to this fun game day cocktail.

3 cups sweetened iced tea
3 cups pineapple juice
1 cup orange-tangerine juice
1 cup bourbon
Garnish: Orange curls

Stir together the tea, the pineapple juice, the orange juice & the bourbon. Pour the mixture into two {4-cup} plastic storage containers. Freeze for 12 to 24 hours. 

Remove both of the containers from the freezer. Let stand at room temperature 20 to 25 minutes. Place one of the semi-frozen blocks into a large stainless steel bowl & cut it into at least 16 pieces with a chef knife. The mixture will break apart easily into slushy sheets or chunks. Place the blender jar on the base of the Wolf Gourmet Blender. Add the icy chunks of the mixture to the blender jar & top with the lid. Place on the Manual setting & move the dial to Speed 8. Push the Start/Stop button to blend at 10 second intervals, stopping to stir the mixture with a long handled wooden spoon, for a total of 30 seconds. The digital clock will count how many seconds have passed in the blending process. Place the remaining semi-frozen block into a large stainless steel bowl. Cut into at least 16 pieces with a chef knife. Add to the blender base container with the rest of the mixture. Continue blending on the Manual setting at Speed 8. Push the Start/Stop button to blend at 10 second intervals, stopping to stir the mixture with a long handled wooden spoon, for a total of 30 seconds. The mixture will have a smooth & creamy sorbet-like texture. Pour or spoon the frozen cocktail into glasses. Garnish, if desired.

The Extra Point

The recipe can be stirred together & served over ice for an equally tasty cocktail creation.
