The pistachios make a nice addition to these little nuggets of cheese.
4 oz of both white cheddar and mozzarella cheese. I had an 8 oz bar so I just had to cut it in half. You can buy shredded cheese but the block self grated cheese melts better. The 4 oz is equal to about 1 cup of grated cheese.
I used the food processor to grate the cheese and mix the batter.
All the cheese is grated.
Add 1 cup Bisquick
Add 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard. This adds a really tangy flavor to these balls.
1 teaspoon steak sauce. I used my Archies steak sauce
1 cup pistachio nuts. If you are not using the food processor you will want to chop them.
Here is the batter.
I used a cookie scoop to scoop them out. This batter is very sticky.
I scooped them out onto a parchement lined cookie sheet. Place in a preheated 400 oven. Bake for about 15 minutes. I ended up cooking mine another minute or so but I think I made my balls a little too big, but using the scoop was worth it.
Fresh from the oven. They smell so good. And they get such a pretty golden brown.
This is the inside of the ball. They are a nice change of pace from sausage balls but I don't think you could make up a bunch and freeze them raw like you can sausage balls because of the eggs.
