Hot Sausage Grilled Cheese-it tastes JUST like a holiday sausage ball. 

Have you made sausage balls before? They only seem to appear during end-of-year holiday celebrations and they are the first things to disappear from the appetizer table. Made with Bisquick, ground sausage and shredded cheese, they're the easiest thing to make. But this grilled cheese is easier.

Recipe is below. You're welcome.

Yield: 6 sandwiches

6 oz. bulk hot breakfast sausage
1 stalk celery, small dice
1/4 cup onion, small dice
3 tsp sage, ground
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
6 slices whole wheat bread
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 
1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add sausage, celery, onion and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the sausage as it cooks; Season with sage. Drain excess fat.

2. With a butter knife, spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place 2 slices, buttered side down, on work surface. Divide sausage and cheese evenly on both slices. Top with remaining slices, buttered side up.

3. Heat the skillet over medium heat. Add sandwiches and cover; cook, turning once with a spatula, until golden brown and the cheese has just melted, about 3-4 minutes per side.

4. Slice and serve immediately.

As a special treat, I recognize that not everyone is into sausage, so look below and see what holiday treat you are! Comment below (I'm fudge!)

Neese's or Jimmy Dean hot sausage are my favorite with Neese's extra sage coming in a close third.
