Einkorn Sausage-Cheese Balls
My latest Einkorn Bake Mix experiment came out real tasty and I thought I'd share with the other Einkorn experimenters on the boards here. Let me just say if someone handed me these at a party and said these were the original Bisquick recipe, I would have totally bought it hook, line and sinker. Simply delicious! It's what we had for breakfast today.
I already have a Sausage Cheese Ball recipe on my website that rings in at only 1 net carb per ball. But it has a long list of low-carb baking ingredients. I decided I wanted to try making them with my new, convenient Einkorn Bake Mix (similar to Bisquick and Carbquick) and have come up with what I think is an even better sausage ball. And they only rings in at 1.76 net carbs per ball! Not bad for the convenience of just reaching for 3 ingredients in lieu of a whole bunch of ingredients in my old recipe.
12 oz. breakfast sausage (16 oz. if you like more)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese (more if you like)
2 c. Peggy's Einkorn Bake Mix (see recipe below)
DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Mix the above ingredients in a medium bowl with your hands as you would a meatloaf mixture. When thoroughly blended, form into 30 1″ balls and place on non-stick baking sheet or one lined with parchment or silicone sheet for ease of clean-up. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove to paper towels to drain off any excess grease (mine had none actually). Serve warm and ENJOY!
NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 30 1″ balls, each contains:
7.81 g fat
2.4 g carbs, .64 g fiber, 1.76 g NET CARBS
4.82 g protein
81 mg sodium
BUTTONI'S EINKORN BAKE MIX
(Substitutions at your own risk)
5 c. almond flour
2 c. plain whey protein powder
1 c. Einkorn flour
1 c. oat flour
¼ c. oat fiber
1 tsp. glucomannan powder
3 T. baking powder
2 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tsp. salt
1½ c. palm shortening
Grind the oats into flour in your food processor or blender as fine as you can get it. Place the oat flour into a large mixing bowl. Measure out all remaining dry ingredients and stir well. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut the shortening into the mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Place in a lidded container and store on your pantry shelf, as palm shortening has a long shelf life. If you prefer to refrigerate, the shortening will get hard. So you will have to set the mix out and bring to room temperature, re-work the shortening clumps with a fork and stir well to evenly distribute shortening before attempting to measure for use in recipes. I really think refrigeration is unnecessary.
BAKE MIX NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 11 cups of mix. ½ cup mix contains:
28.2 g fat
15.99 g carbs, 4.6 g fiber, 11.39 g NET CARBS
14.5 g protein
170 mg sodium

They WERE great, Nigel. So much better than my other low-carb sausage-cheese balls. And so much easier, with the mix. I'm just trying the mix out in prior low-carb recipes to see how they cook up for me. I'm quite pleased so far.
