Sausage Balls

If you ever need to bribe someone, these will do the trick.

Sausage Balls

  • 1 lb Jimmy Dean hot sausage, uncooked
  • 2 c shredded sharp cheddar
  • 2 c dry Bisquik

Heat oven to 350F.

Combine with your hands and roll into 1-½ inch balls. This takes a while to mix (and a little elbow grease), then all of the sudden it comes together. It also helps to let the sausage come to room temperature first.

Bake at 350 for 15min.

*Note: these are easy to overcook and will get dry. If your oven works right, at 15 minutes they are done.


This is how it looks when I just start mixing.

Then all of the sudden, it comes together.IMG_4881 IMG_4883

  1. These were always a favorite at our house at Christmas time. (why we didn’t do it other times of the year is just a mystery). I’d forgotten all about them! They are delicious with a little bit of your favorite sweet/hot mustard 🙂

  2. do you just put the DRY bisquick in with raw sausage and mix it or do you cook the sausage and mix the bisquick according to the directions for biscuits????

    • Yes Helen! Dry bisquik, raw sausage, and the shredded cheese. These go straight together into a bowl to be mixed. Then as you mix, the bisquik gets worked into the fat from the sausage. I’ve updated the recipe so this is clearer THANK YOU 🙂
