Sausage Balls

Sharing is caring!

How can something so small, with only three ingredients, taste so fantastic? You can experiment and add more ingredients, but why stress yourself? These sausage balls are so tasty and easy.

My mom’s original recipe called for 3 cups of Bisquick but I went with 2 and it seemed like more than enough for me. I know, it sounds like I messed up the recipe but trust me – they were great! If you decide to use 3 cups, you might need to add a little bit of milk to make the mixing easier for you. You can also use Jiffy mix if you don’t have Bisquick on hand. For those of you who are totally disgusted by the idea of putting your hands into raw meat, I get it. It’s not my hobby. This is the first time I have ever made sausage balls as an adult on my own, although my mom was here while I was doing it. Any hesitancy you feel will be a distant memory once you pop the first warm treat into your mouth.

This recipe has to be the easiest appetizer ever. I’m not sure you can mess it up. I didn’t have a 10 oz. bag of cheese so I just threw some cheese in there from two different bags without measuring. I ended up with about 45 sausage balls, but if you roll them smaller you could make a lot more. If you don’t think you can cook, this recipe is for you. They do have a bit of kick, in my opinion, so have some sweet tea ready. You won’t be able to stop eating them!

  • 1 lb. hot ground sausage
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 10 oz. shredded sharp cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the cheese and sausage in a large bowl.
  • Mix the sausage and cheese together with your hands. I'm serious.
  • Add in the Bisquick and continue mixing (with your hands, you can do it).
  • Pinch off a bit of the mixture and roll it between your hands to form small balls.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.


These freeze really well. Do not cook them before freezing.
I cooked mine 20 minutes but check around 15 so you don’t burn them, depending on how your oven cooks.

Just remember, calories don’t count when eating Sausage Balls!
