Sausage Balls

Christmas is FAST approaching and Holiday party season is in full swing and that means one thing in my house… Sausage Balls!  They are quick, easy and SOOOOO GOOD and the perfect party bite!

Roll ‘Em Up

Every Christmas season my brother calls and asks me then I am making sausage balls.  Growing up my mom made them every year.  In my mind the recipe must be something super special and hard because we only got them during the holidays.  Well, little did I know… they are SUPER EASY!

With just a few ingredients, you probably already have on hand, you can make these tasty treats in no time.

The perfect bite

I like to make my sausage balls about the size of a ping pong ball.  This makes each ball 1-2 bites each.  I love this size for parties, family gatherings or just for a snack.  My favorite version has a little kick in them but if I am making them for my niece and nephew (who LOVE them) I leave out the cayenne.

You can make them bigger for a more substantial bite, just make sure to increase cooking time… you want to make sure the sausage is cooked through.

Perfect for your next party

2 pounds pork sausage (I use Jimmy Deans, regular)
2 -2 1/2 cups bisquick
2 cups Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
1 teaspoon pepper
dash of cayenne (optional)


Preheat oven to 350
Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper
In the bowl of a stand mixer combine sausage, 2 cups bisquick, cheese, pepper and cayenne (if using) until well combined
Add in additional bisquick if mixture is too wet, you want it to hold together in a ball
Roll in ping pong size balls, you should get about 60
Place sausage balls onto prepared pans with a little space in between each ball
Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until tops are starting to brown and cheese is bubbly
Remove and let sit for 5 minutes before serving
**Store in refrigerator and heat up in oven or microwave to serve warm


Leave cayenne out for a more mild option
