A spicy snack to be eaten with cocktail sauce

I got this from my sister who got it from my mother. My mother has been cooking it for a long time.


(Serves 10-12 as appetizer)


  1. Preheat the oven to Grate the cheese.
  2. Combine all the ingredients and knead until well mixed. You may need to add a little beef broth to get it to stick together.
  3. Shape into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet or broiler pan.
  4. Bake at for 25 minutes.


Don't put too many on a cookie sheet or the grease will fill it up and run off into your oven. These should be served with cocktail sauce. They are very rich. They can be made ahead and frozen until your party, then warmed before serving.

Cooks outside North America should remember that a biscuit is a scone. If you don't have any biscuit mix, you can make some by cutting together 2 1/2 cups of flour, 4 tsp of baking powder, and 1/2 cup of vegetable shortening or butter.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 15 minutes preperation, 30 minutes cooking and cooling.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
