Thanksgiving morning at the Moore County fox hunt often begins with decadent brunch fare like mimosas and Scotch eggs. White tablecloths are not required - tailgating can be as fancy or no-frills as you like. Mike and Irene Russell hold a catered post- hunt breakfast at their farm for more than 200 invited guests.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix into a dough.
Form into balls about an inch in diameter and place on a baking sheet.
