If you’re hosting a party for the big game, check out this scrumptious recipe from our Frugal Family Feast series. It will feed your entire team for less than $15.

Big games bring out big appetites. When you’re watching something like the Super Bowl, it’s a good idea to have a lot of easy-to-eat, great-tasting food on hand. This week’s Frugal Family Feast is festive, fun, and super easy to make. Best of all, you can feed a ton of people with this make-ahead dish for less than $15.

Chef Chad Thilborger, author of “Whole Heap of Goodness,” shared his recipe for sausage balls with Money Talks News founder Stacy Johnson. You toss the ingredients together, mix, roll into balls and they’ll keep a day or two before you bake them. It’s so easy and delicious, you’ll savor the flavor without missing a single play. Check out this video and read on for the recipe.

Have kids get in on the game by kneading the dough and rolling the balls. If you have some spice-sensitive spectators, substitute regular pork sausage for the hot kind. You can definitely feed your whole squad and Chef Chad tells us you can pick up these simple ingredients for less than $15 at your local grocery store. Score!

Ingredients:

1 pound sharp cheddar cheese

1 pound hot pork sausage

2 ½  cups dry biscuit mix

Preparation:

Grate cheese, break raw sausage up into small pieces, mix into biscuit mix with hands. Knead very well. The more you knead it, the easier it is to make the balls. Roll into small, bite-sized balls. Always remember that these will grow a bit in the oven. Be sure not to make these too big, so guests can pop them into their mouths.

Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes or until they start to brown.

Hint:  You can make these a day or two before the party and keep them tightly covered in the refrigerator. Take them out one hour before cooking to get them close to room temperature.  For a touch of added drama, grate some fresh Parmesan cheese over the tops of these on your serving dish.
