Debbie's notes for this recipe:
I ain't talking Jerry Lee Lewis here. These little appetizers can have quite a kick. The degree of "hotness" depends on the amount of Tabasco and cayenne pepper used. If you're like most of my family, you'll say "bring on the heat!" But be careful, too much can lead to increased beverage consumption.

Thoroughly mix together all ingredients except sausage to form a dough.
Cut each sausage into three pieces. Shape a small amount of dough around each piece of sausage and roll into a ball.
Place sausage ball on greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until dough is lightly golden.

This sounds great .I may have to make two batches, one for me and the other for my brother. I like heat but not as much as he does.
