I don't know about you but I have 2 boys that will eat you out of house and home so I have to choose snacks full of protein to keep them filled up while I am getting lunch ready and they are going in and out of the show ring. Cream Cheese Sausage Balls are a great make a head of time snack that I can freeze and just take to the barn.
1 stick (2.5 lbs) of Blue and Gold Sausage (The ONLY kind in my opinion)
1.5 cups of Bisquick
1.5 bricks of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
2 big handfuls of monetary jack cheese
Now before I go into the mixture I would like to tell you why I am partial to Blue and Gold Sausage. Now most of us have heard or even said the term bleed blue and gold but here in Oklahoma we mean it. As the official photographer for the Oklahoma FFA Foundation I have been very fortunate to have an opportunity to meet some pretty amazing people.
I showed up for a shoot early on a fall morning in Jones Oklahoma. We took a small tour through the Blue and Gold plant and then when over to the family house where I met Mr. and Mrs. Don Ramsey, founder of Blue and Gold Sausage and the Oklahoma FFA Foundation. We ventured outside for the interview to began. I took photos and listened to Mr. Ramsey tell his story about playing basketball at OBU and walking to Stillwater to OSU A&M (at the time) to become an ag teacher. As the day grew Mr. Ramsey painted a vivid picture of what teaching ag "back in the day" looked like. He also had a vision of what the future of our Oklahoma FFA needed to look like as well, and that is when he started the Oklahoma FFA Foundation. This foundation helps support our state FFA convention along with a multitude of programs and scholarships for our youth. Mr. Ramsey's son Brett is the current foundation president and has continued to keep up his fathers legacy and I am proud to call him my friend.

Blue and Gold Sausage is used as a fundraiser for a magnitude and has spread throughout the country. Here is a link if you would like to get started. https://www.blueandgoldsausage.com/how-it-works .
I mix all of the contents in a large mixing bowl and roll into small balls. I bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes. Once I have let them cool I place a paper towel in the bottom of a rubber maid container and freeze for the show.
I make 2 batches of these because they are gone in no time.
