Nan's Sausage "Appys"

WARNING - Before you keep reading: These cheesy golden, baked lumps of goodness are not on my list of things to eat while I am trying to lose weight - and probably shouldn't be on yours either.  Make at your own risk.

1 lb hot Italian sausage
1 lb grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups Bisquick
1 cup milk
2 Tbl dry minced onion
(or 1/4 cup chopped onion - but I always use dry and I'm pretty sure my mother does too, which would lead me to believe that Nan did as I have no idea why it even says this on the recipe)
4 Tbl dried parsley

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook the sausage meat (minus skins) in a fry pan until done. Drain.

In a large bowl, mix all other ingredients well. Add sausage into the mixture.

Drop by spoonfuls onto **GREASED** cookie sheet.
((I have included the stars and the underline because it is strongly emphasized on the hand written recipe that my mother gave to me.))

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Sausage appys are one of those recipes that every family has. Everyone knows what they are, and everyone loves them. There really is nothing not to like about them...sausage and cheese married and living in a biscuit? Shut up. They are one of THE BEST things to make for a party you are hosting, or bring to a party that you can't show up to empty handed. They seriously are so good. They don't look all that pretty, actually they're pretty scary looking if you don't know what they are, but once you start eating them, you can't stop. I have made a believer out of many. I promise you will fall in love.
