Recipes from Supper Club - Appetizers and Side Dishes

Here are some great recipes that we really enjoyed this past weekend:

Texas Caviar:
2 (15 oz) cans black eyed peas
1 (15 oz) can hominy
1 (15 oz) can of petite diced tomatoes
1 small can of black olives
4 green onions chopped
1 green pepper chopped
2 teaspoons garlic minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 small can of corn (optional, I did not use)
1/2 bottle Italian dressing (I use Zesty Italian)

Mix all ingredients together and drain.  I usually drain all the cans before I dump them in then pour the Italian dressing over it and I don't drain that.  Serve with fritos.

French Onion Soup Stuffed Mushrooms - this may be the only Pioneer Woman recipe that I didn't LOVE.  

Restaurant Style Salsa - always a hit!

Sausage Balls
1 pound sausage
1 cup bisquick
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese
Mix all together in a large mixing bowl.  Keep mixing until it's all mixed together (this takes some time).  Roll into quarter size balls and place about 1" apart on a pan with sides (don't want a grease fire).  Cook for 5 minutes at 425 then take out and flip each one.  Put back in the oven for 6-7 more minutes until browned.  Remove and let cool for a moment then place on several paper towels to drain.  

I also made mac and cheese and baked beans to go with bbq, slaw and hush puppies for dinner.  The slaw and hush puppies were from 521 BBQ which you Charlotte girls must try.  The bbq was from a guy Kevin's Dad knows.
