Spicy Sausage Balls

"This is seriously a no-brainer! It is so delish! Great as an appetizer, breakfast item, or brunch dish! I also will freeze these in a large ziplock, pulling them out for a breakfast on the go. They just take a minute or so in the microwave if they're frozen!"

Ready In:




  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Combine dry bisquick mix, raw sausage, and cheese in a large mixing bowl. (***mixture will be very dry -- so it's important to allow your sausage and cheese to come to room temperature before combining.).
  • Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Form small balls (more like loose clumps)out of mixture, and line balls on baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until browned and crispy!

    Love these sausage balls! Have to make them for my nephew for all special family gatherings. TIP: Mix bisquick and shredded cheese together in a bowl, put sausage in a separate bowl. Add 1/2 cup bisquick/cheese mixture to sausage bowl and mix until well blended. (Hands are your best tool of course.)<br/>Continue this process until all mixture and sausage is complete.

    Love this recipe. Making a batch right now for Christmas 2018. Had no problem getting all the ingredients to meld into a dough. Secret is not to use pre-shredded bagged cheese. The commercial shredded cheese has an additive to keep the shreds from sticking together, which works against you in the making of this. Buy 1 lb whole block cheese and shred it in your food processor. Then kneed the dough until it all comes together. If you have baking mix and cheese that won't combine, place the loose material on top of your dough and fold it to the center, then continue to kneed.

    I've been making these for years! They are one of my favorites. I usually use less bisquick. I think about 1 cup and I usually use Jimmy Dean hot or spicy sausage. I also make a dip using an egg yolk, dijon mustard some vinegar and sugar. I'll have to try to actually measure, I just add and mix until it "tastes right". Next time I make them I'll come back and post the measurements!

    I use the dough hook on my Kitchenaid mixer for this and it makes it very easy to mix. Also, sometimes I use half cream cheese and half cheddar with the hot sausage. Delicious!

    I used turkey sausage (hot) and 2 bags of the mixed 4 cheeses and it turned out very well. They disappeared very quickly at the potluck. Thanks to jenden9386 for her/his suggestion about mixing the cheese and bisquick first. Worked well.
