Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls are an appetizer that most everyone loves, and this recipe is an extra yummy one with the addition of cream cheese. I made these over the weekend for a party, and they didn't last long. This is a recipe to hang on to.



Sausage Balls
1 pound hot sausage
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups Bisquick
4 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine sausage, cream cheese, and Bisquick; mix together until well combined. Add cheddar cheese, stir until blended. Form into 1-inch balls and place on prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Can be served hot or at room temperature.


Combine the sausage, cream cheese and Bisquick.

Stir together until well combined.

Blend in the cheddar cheese.


Form into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.




You have to try these Sausage Balls, they were gone in no time at the party. I probably should have made two batches.

  1. I'm a fan of this recipe - very good when you've got to come up with something quick for a get-together. A few ways I've tweaked it in the past:
    > Add some jalapenos - because they're awesome!
    > Roll the sausage balls in panko and deep fry them - because crusty deep-fried goodness!
    > Dippin' sauces - because everything's better when dipped!

  5. These sound perfect for the Super Bowl. I've never made them with cream cheese, but I'll bet they'd taste even yummier!!

  6. Anita - these look soooo good! I've made a similar recipe, but without the cream cheese. Since I'm a cream cheese nut - these've gotta be better than what I remember. So glad you shared...thanks.

  8. Sausage balls have been a favorite in my home for many years. I had a roommate in college from KY that got me hooked on them!

  10. What self-respecting Southern gal doesn't understand the importance of sausage balls! These are wonderful and thanks for sharing the recipe. Will probably use in a solar demonstration because folks always have their hands out for tastes. BTW, I've noticed many bloggers are doing the listing thing after sharing recipes instead of long pictures. Is that a special linky, or what? Would love to do it, too, and share other's blogs. Come visit when you can.
