1 1/2 cups almond meal/flour
1/2 pound ground sausage-preservative free
4oz shredded cheddar cheese or colby jack cheese (reduced fat)
1/3 pack of reduced fat cream cheese (approx. 2-3 oz.)
(makes approx. 32 balls at about 1.5 net carbs each)
Preheat the oven to 375. Put all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly-with hands. Cover baking sheet with foil (for easier clean up). Roll into small balls, place on baking sheet approx. 1/2 inch apart and bake at 375 until golden brown. Place on paper towels to absorb excess grease.
TIP: try dipping in creamy spinach dip or ranch dressing. Trader Joe’s has one of the cheaper prices for almond flour/meal. You can purchase preservative free sausage such as Swaggerty’s (a local company from Kodak, TN!!) or Jimmy Dean at Kroger.
