These are great for a party...everyone always loves Sausage balls. Living in NC, I usually use Neese's family sausage...not sure how available that is elsewhere. ENJOY!

This is now my go-to sausage ball recipe. I used hot sausage & sharp cheddar cheese and they were fantastic. Much more moist than the recipe i was using. The dipping sauce I always use is 1 part prepared mustard to 2 parts apple jelly, melted and blended together.

These were a HIT at our church coffee hour today! I used Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage so I left out the spices. I mixed in my Kitchen Aid, used low-fat Bisquick, and did have to use a bit more milk. My mixture was just moist enough to hold together in a ball. I found it easier to form the balls by hand vs. my small cookie scoop, since the dough is pretty stiff/compact. was surprised how grease-free these turned out (easy to eat by hand)! These turned out a perfect texture and not dry either.Also, I was in a hurry so I baked at 375 and they formed a nice brown crust. Thanks Slkendrick, for posting. Roxygirl

This is the best sausage ball recipe I've ever made! I have made different varieties of this same recipe, but these balls were the most moist and flavorful. I used a 1 lb. chub of turkey sausage, and Hodgson Mills Whole Wheat Baking Mix. The milk in the recipe is why I believe these don't turn out so dry and crumbly like other recipes I've tried. I love the seasonings and I also added 1/3 cup parmesan vs. 1/2 cup. We love our cheese! I got 53 balls from this recipe! Thanks so much for this great recipe!
